On May 4th 2021, we celebrate the launch of Counterpoints: A San Francisco Bay Area Atlas of Displacement and Resistance (PM Press) by Erin McElroy, UC Santa Cruz Feminist Studies alum and co-founder of the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project. Counterpoints brings together cartography, essays, illustrations, poetry, and more in order to depict gentrification and resistance struggles from across the San Francisco Bay Area. Compiled by the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project, each chapter reflects different frameworks for understanding the Bay Area’s ongoing urban upheaval, including: evictions and root shock, indigenous geographies, health and environmental racism, state violence, transportation and infrastructure, migration and relocation, and speculative futures.
