Community Land Trusts and the housing needs of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) in the San Francisco Bay Area.
This dissertation analyses the extent to which Community Land Trusts (CLTs) in the San Francisco Bay Area can mitigate the displacement of Black, Indigenous and People Of Colour (BIPOC), and how they align with wider activism for housing equity and racial justice. It answers the question: to what extent are CLTs in the Bay Area intentionally integrating the housing needs of BIPOC into their agenda, in efforts to mitigate the displacement of BIPOC from their neighbourhoods? Using four Bay Area based CLTs and the East Bay Permanent Real Estate Cooperative (EB PREC) as case studies, semi-structured interviews were used to gather data on the intentionality of CLTs work with BIPOC communities and their efforts to collaborate with grassroots organisations in order to achieve this. It was found that, where some CLTs explicitly expressed their intentions to prioritise BIPOC communities, others feel too restricted by the Federal Housing Act to pursue such affirmative action. Moreover, all five organisations collaborated with housing rights and racial justice organisations, which kept them rooted to local grassroots movements. It is concluded that, of all the organisations interviewed, EB PREC is at the forefront of integrating the housing needs of BIPOC into their agenda, and therefore is in the best position to mitigate their displacement. This paper reveals the necessity for CLTs to be intentional about serving BIPOC communities in order to achieve racial justice in the housing market.
