I am one of the conveners of the Coalition for Property Tax Justice, formerly known as the Coalition to End Unconstitutional Tax Foreclosures.
All my work deals with land stolen from people of the African diaspora. My first book, We Want What's Ours: Learning from South Africa's Land Restitution Program, was about the land stolen in South Africa during apartheid and colonialism. My new book is about the land stolen through illegal assessments and the resulting property tax foreclosure crisis in Detroit, which has an 80% African American population.
My work highlights structural injustice that robs black people of their homes and property.
In our door-to-door outreach, Regrid is indispensable. Regrid is a key and valued partner in the work.
