    Community Solutions: Land Trusts + Cooperatives

     

    Green Worker Cooperatives, and the Bronx Organizer’s Collective invite you to an event to hear from community leaders on the cutting edge of long term solutions for the problem facing Bronxites - gentrification of their neighborhood and the displacement of their families and businesses.

     

    We see the folks across the city who have limited resources in a desperate fight against the big money of developers. Bronxites are searching for tools to stay in their homes and businesses, to have real affordable rents to be near their families, jobs, and more.

     

    Even as redevelopment and displacement happens around us, the Bronx has a tradition of building shared ownership.

    Shared ownership is an economic development strategy that organizations can use and are using in their services and campaigns for residents. We know that tools such as community land trusts, and housing & worker cooperatives can provide stability to those most vulnerable. Green Worker Cooperatives believe these are solutions to the problems of a shifting city and we can give our assistance to community groups and individuals to begin the process of growing collective wealth. And do it here, in the Bronx.

     

    Join us to learn more about the tools we can use and meet with others already taking action.

    Free. Light refreshments will be served.
