Land Power

From its roots in mid-century land reform in India and Israel and the civil rights movement in the American South, the community land trust has become a potent means of securing land tenure and strengthening collective power. Today this housing development model is being used to achieve affordability in cities from the South Bronx to San Juan.

Sustaining a community land trust requires radical commitment to housing justice and local self-determination. It’s also a powerful way of practicing contemporary citizenship.
