This week’s SGV Connect Podcast is the second part of a two part series on housing and tenants issues in the San Gabriel Valley and features Connie Tamkin, the president of the San Gabriel Valley Community Land Trust. If you missed part one of the series with Allison Henry, one of the leaders of the San Gabriel Valley Tenants Council, you can find the audio and transcript here.

As with the first podcast, Damien and Chris were on-site for the interview, which covered the history of the new community land trust, some of the projects it's working on and how to effectively advocate for marginalized communities as an organization when many of the board members and volunteers are white collar professionals. 

There’s also a lot of information about the various land trust models and their place in advocating for and providing housing options in a supply-restricted market. So if you’re looking for a great primer for someone not well-versed in this issue; this podcast is a great place for them to start.

If you prefer the typed word, you can read a transcript of the interview here

SGV Connect is supported by Foothill Transit, offering car-free travel throughout the San Gabriel Valley with connections to the new Gold Line Stations across the Foothills and Commuter Express lines traveling into the heart of downtown L.A.
