Shashawnda Campbell, Meleny Thomas, and Greg Sawtell, Understanding Community Power in Influencing Change

SBCLT is a community land trust in Baltimore working to lead a just transition to zero waste and create development without displacement. The idea for SBCLT emerged through the youth led struggle to stop the nations’ largest trash incinerator from being built less than a mile from schools. Youth and community leaders declared the need for a democratically governed organization capable of implementing a development vision centered around the needs of our community, our health and our environment.
