National Dialogue

October 10, 2013

1:30 - 3pm Eastern / 10:30am - 12noon pacific

Please us for the next installment in the National Dialogue series. We will be discussing community benefit agreements as a tool to build vibrant neighborhoods and cities, and ensure lasting citywide infrastructure that cultivates economies of opportunity for local residents. 

We will hear from several local leaders who have led campaigns for community benefit agreements, while building community power across social movements. The campaigns that will be presented have achieved major wins for affordable housing, inclusionary zoning, and transit-oriented development. These wins have also won creation and access to good jobs for thousands of residents - key wins for labor and housing advocates alike. Presenters will spend time talking about the key pieces of their wins, the critical implementation and enforcement work ahead, and the creative organizing that makes it all possible.
