The gentrification debate is one that rages in neighborhoods across the city, and will officially be raging on September 1st as a part of IDSA's Fight Club series. The opposing Fighters will be from the "Uptown Neighborhood Council" and the "Organization of the North East" (ONE), both are situated in the heart of the most controversial gentrification battlefronts in Chicago. We hear it's fun, enlightening, and $5 at the door.
