Housing Is A Human Right: Organizing For Community Land Trusts

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Housing insecurity, displacement and homelessness are rampant and rising. Learn how groups are organizing for community land trusts (CLTs) and other community-led development models in NYC and beyond, to address root causes of displacement, segregation and homelessness. New to CLTs? Never fear! This workshop will include an overview of the structure and history of CLTs before diving into lessons learned from the NYC CLT movement and the strategies we’re using to build the social, political and economic support needed to spread CLTs across our city. BONUS: This workshop includes a live session of Trustville, our new board game that teaches players about the benefits of CLTs.
