From the Paper:

"I will examine the effect of a "cultural exchange" experiment that aims to develop loving kindness between two culturally and economically different groups of people - Latinos and young urban professionals - who inhabit the same space in San Francisco's Mission District. Acknowledging that this co-habitation is a recent shift away from the former identification of the district as a Latino space, I intend to look for a way to ease escalating tensions in the region, perpetuated by such organizations as the Yuppie Eradication Program, that arise from arrogant perception on the part of both groups who in so far lack understanding of the opposing group as well as the opportunity to broach understanding. The intention of the experiment is to find a peaceful way that stems from "world traveling" (Lugones, 390-402) to end abuse without identification on the part of both groups of residents so that the district can develop into a safe and stimulating space for Latinos and young urban professionals."
