Session 5: Community Land Trusts: Organizing for Community Control
This session will provide an overview of community land trusts (CLTs), as a promising tool for addressing root causes of homelessness and displacement, and for creating truly affordable housing over the long term. Come learn about the structure and history of CLTs, CLT creation and stewardship, and how your group can start a CLT and get involved in the CLT movement in NYC. BONUS: Participants will play Trustville, a new board game that shows players the benefits of CLTs and mutual housing associations (MHAs).
