Advocating & Educating for
Affordable Housing and
History . Data . Action.
ABOUT EQUITABLE COMMUNITIES CLT
Our goal of educating the public is to create well informed advocates who understand the details and
complexity of both the affordable housing and economic issues using facts that are specific and measurable. We
will train and educate our advocates not to focus on generating emotional advocacy but specific fact-based
measurable solution alternatives that will help to create strong communities.
We will partner with the elected officials and the broader community to change the narrative and gain support
for alternative actions. We will find creative ways to continue to involve the communities of people affected and
leverage their input to enhance everyone’s mutual understanding.
Equitable Communities CLT started as a community book read, which sparked community interest in the issues of affordable housing and housing equity in the Charlotte area.
