This map, the Narratives of Displacement and Resistance Oral History map, is a project of the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project. We aim to document urban change in Los Angeles by foregrounding the stories of people who have been or who are being displaced. Through collecting these oral histories and placing them on an online map of Los Angeles, we aim to create a living archive, documenting deep and detailed neighborhood and personal histories. We do this work to build power amongst the community of residents fighting to stay in Los Angeles.

Red dots represent Ellis Act evictions and blue circles contain oral history interviews. Click on a blue dot to listen to someone’s story.
