Leaven Community Highlights

LISTENING and ACTING POWERFULLY TOGETHER

BUILDING ON OUR STORIES AND ACTIONS IN 2017, the Leaven Community Land and Housing Coalition is organizing meetings in our neighborhoods and communities of faith to continue listening to our stories around housing pressures and the issues at the intersection those pressures...i.e. gentrification, economics, aging, immigration status, etc.

We are discerning how we can act together to use our power and resources to build housing and act collectively at local levels for housing justice.
