Democratizing development: Community-controlled, permanently-affordable housing in a world gone RAD


Justice for Breakfast discussion series

May 6, 2014 8:15 - 9:30 am

When current public policy centers on selling off public assets and giving tax breaks to private developers for luxury condos, how do we re-envision housing that is truly public and oriented toward the common good? Democratizing development through community land trusts, a land bank, and a human rights framework has the potential to address some of Baltimore’s most systemic issues including homelessness, vacant houses, and deteriorating communities. Join us for breakfast and discuss a recent initiative by the Public Justice Center, United Workers and other grassroots organizations, nonprofit developers and housing policy folks to build a movement that redirects public investment toward community-controlled, permanently-affordable housing and addresses some of Baltimore’s most significant crises.
