T.R.U.S.T. South LA (formerly Figueroa Corridor Community Land Trust) is a community-based effort to stabilize the neighborhoods south of downtown Los Angeles, where increased property values and rents have pushed out many long-term residents. Our goals are to build community control over land; to preserve and build opportunities for working-class people to remain in the community; and to build the capacity and power of local residents to have a say in the future of their neighborhoods. We work towards these goals by: building a strong membership base; engaging our members in planning the development of their neighborhoods; acquiring land to be held in trust in perpetuity; and partnering to develop affordable housing, commercial uses, parks and gardens on the land.
