The OVC Gang Injunction & Gentrification
By Courtney Mendoza

Another property for sale on Glassell St. near The Friendly Center
What lies ahead...
“The injunction will motivate the affected folks to move out...causing the property values to plummet, making it even easier for a predatory corporation to pick off the remaining properties. In this case, the predatory corporation, the real big money in central Orange, is Chapman University.”

- Vern Nelson
