Community Land Trust Association of West Marin

Oakland, CA


As a community land trust, CLAM takes land and housing out of the speculative real estate market and holds it “in trust” to serve as a long-term community asset for housing people. A community land trust (CLT) is a democratically-run organization, governed by a board of directors that is elected by its members. Members are residents of the CLT’s service area who support the CLT’s mission. CLTs can be used for many types of community-led development–from agriculture projects to commercial spaces–but CLTs primarily focus on housing. CLAM Land Acknowledgement The movement to put land and housing into community ownership is growing all over the world. There are more than 250 community land trusts in the United States alone. The Community Land Trust of West Marin (CLAM) finds its home in the traditional and unceded territories of the Coast Miwok people. CLAM recognizes that colonization, genocide, and race-based discrimination laid the groundwork for the housing landscape that we CLTs are now trying to change.
