Join us on Oct. 9 for "Getting a Piece of the Pie: Community Land Trusts and Community Control"

Are there alternative ways to own land, run businesses, and assert community control? How can these models be harnessed by everyday Detroiters to create community wealth? 

On Oct. 9, well take a look at these questions and more at a panel event, the third of four, as part of our ongoing Equitable Development series. The event is free and open to the public, but please RSVP here. Food and refreshments will be provided. 

Panelists and moderator include: 
  • Terry Lewis, business and financial strategy officer for the Center for Community Based Enterprise
  • Nicholas Leonard, interim director of the Great Lakes Environmental Law Center
  • Brian Donovan, co-director of the Cooperation Group
  • Tom Goddeeris, deputy director of Detroit Future City

We'll also be hosting an IDEA Lab in early 2019 that will explore urgent topics to help inform and educate how Detroit can grow inclusively. Stay tuned for more information about dates, speakers, and more. 

This event is part of our Equitable Development series, in partnership with Doing Development Differently in Metro Detroit, where we explore issues and stories on growing Detroit in a way that allows people from all races, classes, and abilities to participate and benefit from development.

The Equitable Development Series is made possible thanks to generous support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the Knight Foundation Fund of the Community Foundation.
