Lisa Manning and Terry Masters have been participating in meetings organized by the Portland Restorative Listening Project in Portland, Ore. Manning, a long time African-American resident, wants people to know how gentrification has displaced her family. Masters, who is white, goes to listen and to meet his neighbors.
