Become a Member of the Housing for All Long Beach Community Land Trust

Are you a resident of the City of Long Beach or the surrounding communities including Compton, Paramount, Carson, and Wilmington? If so, join the fight to take community control of land and housing by becoming a voting Member of the Housing for All Long Beach CLT (HFALBCLT)! We are building a movement to stop the displacement of working-class residents from our neighborhoods and we need you! As a Member of HFALBCLT, you will elect members to the Board of Directors, and will help make decisions about the organization’s priorities. 

HFALBCLT is a nonprofit with an open membership and a democratically elected board of directors, which ensures that our organization stays connected to what matters most in our communities. We are a membership organization because we will hold properties in perpetuity – forever – and the membership structure is designed to ensure that our community land trust will be sustainable and can take care of the properties, to make sure that current community members benefit from them, and that all future generations benefit as well.
