Eviction, displacement and gentrification are topics that are affecting the lives of Mission District residents and specially the Latino population. As part of MAPP (Mission Arts and Performance Project) writer and friend Adriana Camarena and I organized a procession through the streets of the Mission District, lamenting the loss of cultural diversity and the displacement of working class families due to the tech boom and housing bubble.
In an opening ceremony we invoked the Spirit of the Mission to walk with us through the Mission District. Altars were set up and interventions and readings were performed at the eviction sites.
