CURATORIAL INFORMATIONSTATEMENT   



The young activists from P.O.D.E.R. collaborated with CultureStrike artists Susa Cortez and Julio Salgado on a billboard that portrayed some of the things they are doing to fight back against gentrification. They specifically wanted to hight light their #PUEBLOTE campaign where P.O.D.E.R. has organized with Mission residents to reclaim public lands for community use based on community planning efforts that bring together the knowledge and experience of neighborhood residents.




PODER’s mission is to organize with residents of Southeast San Francisco to work on local solutions to issues facing low income communities and communities of color. Through the PUEBLOTE (PUEBLO +LOTE) campaign, PODER is organizing with neighborhood residents to reclaim public lands for community use based on community planning efforts that bring together the knowledge and experience of neighborhood residents. PODER is a membership based organization that works to build the leadership of families to organize for Environmental Justice.
