Globeville, Elyria-Swansea (GES) Neighborhoods of Denver Coalition 2018 on United for a New Economy Colorado

UNE has been actively supporting community building and anti-gentrification efforts in the Globeville, Elyria-Swansea (GES) Neighborhoods of Denver since 2012.  Most recently UNE worked with local residents and organizational partners to collect over 500 community surveys in the GES neighborhoods and publish the results in “The People’s Survey”.
UNE staff have provided training to residents and helped to staff the GES Coalition for Health & Housing Justice.  In order to resist the rapid gentrification of the neighborhoods, residents have made efforts to create a community-controlled Community Land Trust.
Residents have been working with the Grounded Solutions Network to build governance structure, recruit technical assistance partners, and make the community-generated vision for the GES-CLT a reality.
