On The Streets: Piru Fade

The whole idea of the "Catch Ups" section is to show an in depth perspective on People and creatives that are putting in work to build or rebuild a culture of some sort. Fade has been a person living in Northeast Portland for all of his life and has seen gentrification in its entirety. In this short video, he tells a piece of his story. His family lost their home after it was left in the responsibility of an irresponsible person. He speaks on what the neighborhood is, has been and what will be.
