Across the nation, communities are taking their fate into their own hands. Our workshop brings together community-based organizations from Buffalo and New York City who are making real progress in leveraging community power, keeping land in the hands of The People, and permanently removing land from the speculative market. This is a space for organizers working to establish community land trusts and other forms of democratically-controlled housing and land to build community, share triumphs and roadblocks, and troubleshoot strategies for decommodifying land and housing.
