Volunteer Carmen Hom, from the InterIm Community Development Association, delivers groceries to elderly and low-income residents in the Chinatown-International District in Seattle, Washington on May 28, 2020.

Says Vincent Kwan, the program manager for InterIm, ”It's called disaster gentrification. An already vulnerable neighborhood - having the impacts of COVID is already accelerating the gentrification that's already happening. So, we're very concerned about that.”
