On October 10, 2019, Executive Director Yesim Sayin Taylor discussed community land trusts as a guest on the Kojo Nnamdi Show:
The cost of living in Washington, D.C. is on the rise and longtime residents are getting priced out of their homes and neighborhoods.
The Douglass Community Land Trust recently made its first property purchase, an apartment complex in Southeast D.C. The organization is attempting to restructure how neighborhoods fight gentrification.
Ginger Rumph, executive director of the Douglass Community Land Trust, and Yesim Sayin Taylor, executive director of the D.C. Policy Center, sit down with Kojo to discuss how housing activists are taking alternative approaches to keeping living in the District accessible.
