EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO LEARN ABOUT LAND TRUSTS & MORE!
National Public Housing Museum invites you to participate in a virtual land trust teach-in.
Register here to receive the Zoom Meeting Link: nphmlandtrust.eventbrite.com.
PART ONE: 11:00 AM-12:00 PM (CT)
PART TWO: 1-2:30 PM (CT)
As land and gardens have often been an extension of someone’s home, this program will share the history and civil rights roots of the land trust movement. Learn about why land trusts are an essential political tool and how they can ensure community control over land. By advocating against displacement and commodification of land, we can imagine an alternative and collective future where housing is a human right.
