Disaster Preparedness Session
Wednesday August 11th 2021 1:30-4:00pm PST
Many CLTs across our region have experienced disasters -–wildfires, earthquakes, major storms-- uprooting operations, homeowners, and neighborhoods. These events create new and foreign challenges for CLTs that can be navigated a little easier with a good plan. CLTs experienced with disaster planning and recovery share their ideas, plans, and resources, so we can all be ready when that day comes.

Lisa Buyers, Executive Director of OPAL and a founding member of both our Northwest Coalition and the national network, now Grounded Solutions Network, leads us through the history of Community Land Trusts, including much of the work done by John Davis to standardize best practices and the development of a federally-recognized, replicable model.

The Arch of Justice, 2016. Watch this award-winning film about the formation of the first Community Land Trust: New Communities, Inc. in Albany, Georgia. Grounded in the civil rights movement of the 1960s, this first CLT was created to protect against the loss of both homes and jobs, as rural farms were sold to suburban developers. We will schedule a second screening at 7pm PST, if requested. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to express interest.
