June 25, 2024 | 12–1PM CLTs and Undocumented Residents: Nuts and Bolts

United States racist immigration policy creates unique hardships for many low-income immigrants in accessing stable, affordable, high-quality homes. At the same time, many low-income immigrants come from indigenous communities with strong traditions in community stewardship and collective governance. This webinar is for both Community Land Trust practitioners and people who work in immigrant communities to learn more about how CLTs and undocumented residents can work together. Participants will hear from a rural CLT working with farmworkers to create an emergency housing project, and permanent housing in Bolinas, California, and from an urban CLT in Los Angeles that is converting an existing home to a housing co-operative that is open for people regardless of documentation. They will share their stories, lessons learned, and how they are navigating the unique challenges and opportunities working with these communities.

La política migratoria racista de Estados Unidos crea dificultades únicas para muchos inmigrantes de bajos ingresos en el acceso a viviendas estables, asequibles y de alta calidad. Al mismo tiempo, muchos inmigrantes de bajos ingresos provienen de comunidades indígenas con fuertes tradiciones en la administración comunitaria y la gobernanza colectiva. Este seminario web está dirigido tanto a los practicantes de Fideicomisos de Tierras Comunitarias (Community Land Trust, CLT) como a las personas que trabajan en comunidades de inmigrantes para aprender más sobre cómo los CLT y los residentes indocumentados pueden trabajar juntos. Los participantes escucharán a un CLT rural que trabaja con trabajadores agrícolas para crear un proyecto de vivienda de emergencia y viviendas permanentes en Bolinas, California, y a un CLT urbano en Los Ángeles que está convirtiendo una vivienda existente en una cooperativa de vivienda abierta a personas independientemente de su situación migratoria. Compartirán sus historias, lecciones aprendidas y cómo están navegando los desafíos y oportunidades únicos al trabajar con estas comunidades.
