Lessons from the All-In Cities Anti-Displacement Policy Network


Cities thrive when all people can live in safe, stable, affordable homes in healthy neighborhoods connected to opportunities without fear of displacement. In 2018, PolicyLink created the All-In Cities Anti-Displacement Policy Network (ADPN), a national network of more than 65 leaders from 11 cities to work together to fight displacement and build thriving cities. Over the course of a year, the network participants developed anti-displacement strategies for their cities while building the power, voice, and capacity of communities directly impacted by displacement in defining challenges and advancing solutions. This report provides a summary of the network — what we did, outcomes, and emerging lessons for the field. It is written to help funders, policy advocates, and others who lead networks refine approaches so we can more effectively address displacement and build prosperous cities for all. Download the brief.
