The All-In Cities Anti-Displacement Policy Network
As rising housing prices continue to outpace wage increases, cities must take concrete steps to prevent the displacement of low-income residents and communities of color. City leaders are increasingly in need of tools to craft effective strategies for all residents to stay, participate, and thrive in their communities.
Launching in early 2018, the All-In Cities Anti-Displacement Policy Network is a learning community of the All-In Cities initiative at PolicyLink. We will support a cohort of 8-10 cities that commit to developing comprehensive anti-displacement policy agendas. Through virtual learning labs, individualized coaching sessions with national experts, and peer-to-peer learning opportunities, teams from each city will analyze their displacement challenges for renters, at-risk homeowners, local businesses, and cultural and religious institutions, and develop actionable solutions for their communities. At the end of their participation, cities will have a new, robust set of tools and strategies to effectively work with their advocacy community to slow, stop, and reverse displacement in their communities.
PolicyLink is conducting targeted outreach for this network in select cities where we have ongoing work and relationships. For information on how to apply, please reach out to Chris Schildt, Senior Associate, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
