Taylor Smith Hams 2017
I'm running with Team Exercise Your Rights to build a more just and sustainable Baltimore. After successfully stopping the nation's largest trash-burning incinerator, Free Your Voice and United Workers are actively building community-driven development in Curtis Bay.
With your support, the Curtis Bay Community Land Trust will purchase its very first home, creating quality permanently affordable housing while demonstrating a new model for Development without Displacement. The Curtis Bay Community Land Trust will demonstrate to the City why it should invest in the 20/20 Vision for Fair Development: $20 million in city funds annually committed for community -based jobs to deconstruct and green vacant houses, and $20 million in city funds annually committed for permanently affordable housing.
This campaign is an inspiring example of people power and the exciting potential for a new path forward, one that is fair and sustainable. Running this race is one small way for me to contribute to this future. I hope you will support this important work!
