Community Ownership & Wealth Building Symposium

We know that residents have not always benefited from increased neighborhood investment or development. Especially recently, rising costs have left many of the most vulnerable in our communities at risk of being displaced and cut off from sharing in new growth, further exacerbating income and wealth inequality. Now, more than ever, we believe it is critical to implement strategies rooted in principles of “community ownership” to stabilize neighborhoods, reduce displacement and ensure residents at a range of socioeconomic levels benefit from new investment.

Join us on Tuesday, March 19th for a morning of activating tools and strategies that will catalyze generative economies and economic opportunity. We will explore this topic through expert speakers, research presentations, and community case studies.
