Part 1: Roline's Story

Roline Burgison and Malchus Mills have struggled to find stability in their gentrifying city of Providence. Foreclosed on and forced out of their homes, they came upon the Tenants and Homeowners' Association at DARE (Direct Action for Rights and Equality), which fights to keep families in their homes, educates tenants about their rights, and organizes on a state-wide level to protect low-income communities of color from the injustice of displacement. Roline and Malchus found a home in and through DARE's activism.
