On Tuesday, May 4, 2021 at 5:30pm–7:00pm, there will be a University Forum to celebrate the launch of Counterpoints featuring original research from multiple campus contributors including SJRC’s Just Biomedicine research cluster and the No Place Like Home initiative.

Counterpoints: A San Francisco Bay Area Atlas of Displacement and Resistance (PM Press) brings together cartography, essays, illustrations, poetry, and more in order to depict gentrification and resistance struggles from across the San Francisco Bay Area and act as a roadmap to counter-hegemonic knowledge making and activism.


Learn more about book launch and the contributors.

The Science & Justice Research Center’s Just Biomedicine research cluster, contributed a chapter titled: ‘Just Biomedicine on Third Street? Health and Wealth Inequities in San Francisco’s Biotech Hub.’ The Third Street project brings into view for public discussion the effects of the resulting financial and ideological investments in an imagined “future of medicine,” and how they are changing the political landscapes, built environments, and health of Bay Area residents right now.

The Transportation, Infrastructure, and Economy contribution by Kristin Miller (Sociology).

The No Place Like Home project contributed a visual summary and map from their large-scale study of the affordable housing crisis for Santa Cruz County tenants. The survey results provide a springboard for the study’s wider discussion of local and regional policy options in addressing the housing crisis, particularly for renters.

Co-Sponsored by University Relations, The Science & Justice Research Center, The UC Santa Cruz Institute for Social Transformation, The Humanities Institute, the Genomics Institute, and departments of Sociology and Feminist Studies.
