Encouraging development without big tax breaks to developers is possible in Baltimore. While Baltimore has used hefty tax subsidies for wealthy developers to fund development in the past, there are more equitable approaches to stimulating growth that do not exacerbate the inequities that plague our city and could repair decades of racial segregation and discrimination: community land trusts.

To understand how community land trusts promote equitable development, help communities grow inclusively, and play a role in reparations, restitution and achieving racial justice, we will be joined by a panel who is successfully using the idea to transform the city.

Panelists:

Katherine Franke, author of Repair: Slavery's Unfinished Business and Sulzbacher Professor of Law, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Columbia University

Adriana Foster, United Workers organizer, co-facilitator of the Baltimore Housing Roundtable, Charm City Land Trusts member

Terrel Askew, United Workers organizer, Baltimore Housing Roundtable member

Doors open at 6pm, program starts at 7pm.

No Dinner Service on Real Talk Tho Tuesday’s. Special menu available for attendees.
