Reclaim Our Futures: Take Back Land & Housing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Gentrification, displacement, cultural erasure — enough! Come hear from people of color-centered groups claiming space for ourselves while organizing in our communities for long-term survival, despite the forces who say it’s impossible. We’ll share how we’re raising cash for permanent housing; talk tips, pitfalls, and different models from land trusts to coops and more); and build with each other. Come get ideas, inspiration, and support to preserve land and community housing for the long haul.
