{} Support Take Back the Land TODAY!


In 2010, the housing crisis deepened and politicians continued to serve the interests of the financial industry over the needs of people. Through it all, Take Back the Land has stood tall and fought for what we believe: elevating housing to the level of a human right and community control over land.

As 2010 comes to a close and we walk into 2011, we are asking you to financially support our work with a year end tax-deductible contribution.

In 2010, Take Back the Land made headlines across the country with our May 2010 Month of Action, featuring housing liberations and eviction defenses in numerous cities across the US, including Portland, OR; Madison, WI; Toledo, OH; New Orleans, LA; Washington, DC; and Miami, FL. 

We provide movement support- such as training, messaging and strategic campaign planning- to local organizations fighting for the human right to housing and for community control over land. We can intensify our efforts in 2011, but only with your help, so we are asking you to make a contribution today. If you make a contribution today, your gift is tax deductible for 2010. This could be your only chance to get the government to help in this fight.

So, please give generously and stay in touch at
