Exciting news! Possum Kingdom Housing Co-op is a revolutionary housing cooperative being formed here in Eugene, OR.
This is a move towards creating more stable and affordable housing for families, and creating viable and inspiring solutions to the housing crisis. As you know, Candice King is a long time activist and Black mom of four who has been organizing a powerful rent strike along with her neighboring tenants. Candice and the other prior tenants are forming a housing cooperative that will provide affordable, community controlled housing at a converted church that is being sold for an affordable price. They will work with an existing land trust to buy the property, and through the cooperative, ensure that rent-burdened tenants can become homeowners.
We have an initial pledge for most of the down payment, and are aiming to raise another $35,000 in the next few weeks. Can you join in supporting this inspiring local housing cooperative today?
