Soliciting Brownfields and Community Revitalization Success Stories The Urban Habitat Program's Community Revitalization and Land Restoration Project supports, through research, leadership training, and policy advocacy, community-driven efforts to clean up and reuse vacant, blighted, and contaminated land as a means of addressing the health, environmental, and economic needs of low-income communities of color in the San Francisco Bay Area. Using brownfields or land recycling as one of many community-building strategies, UHP works to build the capacity and leadership of community-based organizationsto effectively direct urban revitalization efforts across the region. In the next issue of the Urban Habitat Program's celebrated Race, Poverty, and the Environment Journal (RPE), UHP will be reframing brownfields redevelopment from a social justive perspective using the experiences and voices of community leaders and institutions working on environmental justice and community development throughout the nation. We are hoping to include brief profiles of some of the successful initiatives and innovative strategies that have been developed by community-based groups and alliances and/or collaborative multi-stakeholder partneships that have taken leadership in using brownfields as a tool for achieving community revitalization. The Urban Habitat Program would love to document and disseminate your inspirational stories of brownfields-related projects that are rallying communities around key issues such as (but not limited to:) open space; food security; public health and safety; transportation access; job training & employment; leadership development; and local economic development. In addition to being showcased in our upcoming Race, Poverty, and the Environment Journal, all contributors will receive a complimentary copy of UHP's newly released Community Guide to Brownfields Redevelopment. If you are involved in or know of any such projects, please share them with us by contacting Catalina Garzón, Community Revitalization Project Associate, at email@example.com, or at (415) 561-3328.
