This Land, Our Land! Our Future: Reclaiming and Protecting Our Right to Housing by Securing the Role of Youth in Community Land Trusts Integrating

Alma Urbano & Ruben Sanchez - Project VOYCE/GES Coalition
Saturday 7/13/2019 - 11:15am to 12:45pm - Room: Carlson 126
In this workshop, Project VOYCE youth provide background history of the upcoming Globeville Elyria-Swansea Community Land Trust in Denver, Colorado. We provide an insight into how youth and parents can work to celebrate community ownership of land while protecting our neighbors from gentrification and displacement. Through fun group activities and youth-led narratives, we also explore youth-adult partnership tactics necessary to organize intergenerational communities of color around the creation of permanently affordable housing.
