Inclusive Economic Development: Community-Owned Commercial Spaces – Mar 23

Posted by Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations on March 21, 2023

Join Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations (PACDC) Community Development Leadership Institute and LISC Philly for an in-person session exploring models of community ownership of commercial spaces. We will hear from Julia Duranti-Martinez, the author of LISC’s recent report Commercial Community Ownership as a Strategy for Just Development, and Adriana Abizadeh, Executive Director of the Kensington Corridor Trust here in Philadelphia.

Participants will learn more about the use of community ownership in commercial spaces to advance equitable and racially just development in Philadelphia and other cities, via a talk and opportunity to pose questions and discuss with the speakers, and there will be space for participants to explore how these models might be replicated in other neighborhoods and communities.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Date and Time: Thursday, March 23, 2023, 4:00-6:00 PM
