Tell New York City: Keep Public Land in Public Hands

NYCCLI believes that public land must be used for public good. We are calling on the City of New York to prioritize community land trusts (CLTs) and other community-based nonprofits—rather than for-profit developers—when disposing of public land, to keep land and housing permanently-affordable and advance community-led development.
