In partnership with The Emanuel Displaced Persons Association 2 (EDPA2), the FutureLab team has sought to document the wide ranging impacts that racist planning and urban renewal practices have had on Portland’s Black community, with a focus on those forced out of Central Albina as a result of the Emanuel Hospital Urban Renewal Project. Using historical property identification files from the project area, archival photographs, stories from EDPA2 members, and other sources, we have developed an interactive StoryMap illustrating the neighborhood that was demolished for the ill-fated renewal project. Lastly, we have worked with EDPA2 in developing a set of recommendations to move toward just restitution for those displaced by the Emanuel Hospital expansion.
