Join the Phila. Coalition for Affordable Communities for a film screening and interactive workshop to learn about the Civil Rights roots of the Community Land Trust movement and about what is happening to build this movement in Philadelphia.

We will be at Liberty Resources (112 N. 8th St.) on the 2nd Floor in the Wade Blank Room.




* About the film: Arc of Justice traces the remarkable journey of New Communities, Inc. (NCI) in southwest Georgia, a story of racial justice, community organizing, and perseverance in the face of enormous obstacles.

NCI was created in 1969 in Albany, Georgia by leaders of the Civil Rights Movement, including Congressman John Lewis, and Charles and Shirley Sherrod, to help secure economic independence for African American families. For 15 years, NCI cooperatively farmed nearly 6,000 acres, the largest tract of land in the United States owned by African Americans at the time, but racist opposition prevented them from implementing plans to build 500 affordable homes as part of their community land trust.

Blueprint for a Just Neighborhood

Join us for a house-raising ceremony and housewarming celebration as we put the finishing touches on the framework for an affordable house at the “Blueprint for a Just Neighborhood” site at Tillmon Community Garden in Olde/South Kensington.

This site is realized in collaboration with affordable housing advocates including Women's Community Revitalization Project, Philadelphia Coalition for Affordable Communities, Healthy Rowhouse Project, and Tillmon Garden. The program includes contributions from featured artists and collaborators Lisa Adjei, Betty Leacraft, Brujo de la Mancha, Staci Moore, Tieshka K Smith, Denise Valentine, and Mona R. Washington.
