We are so happy to have School of Living’s long time friend, Alanna Hartzok, speak to us about Baltimore Thrive. This initiative brings a vision of restoration and renewal for Baltimore. It prioritizes strengthening land rights and social and racial equity in Baltimore’s communities. It seeks to do this through clear programs, plans, and policies that are built on principles of decentralized politics and economics.
Alanna will sketch a picture of Baltimore Thrive for us using information about community land trusts, land value tax (commons rent), citizen dividends, 15 minute cities, and public banks. Alanna views this work as carrying forward the legacy and vision of the School of Living founders for peace and justice.
Baltimore Thrive is a desperately needed alternative to “business as usual” economic revitalization planning in urban communities. Find out how you can help to bring Baltimore Thrive to reality. Donations for this work are appreciated. There will be time in this information packed presentation for questions. Bring your notebooks!
