Join the Leventhal Map and Education Center for a conversation with the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative (DSNI) on community land trusts, sustainable development, and community resilience in Roxbury.


For over 38 years, DSNI has been empowering Dudley residents to organize, plan for, create and control a vibrant, diverse and high-quality urban village. Their efforts prioritize development without displacement, community power, and collective control. DSNI’s Executive Director, John Smith, and Director of Community Organizing, René Mardones, will talk us through DSNI’s origins and current initiatives as we walk through the neighborhood’s history through maps from our collections.


This talk is virtual, free, open to the public, and will feature a Q&A session with our speakers.


This talk is part of the Leventhal Center's Continued Conversations series in conjunction with the current environmental justice exhibition, More or Less in Common: Environment and Justice in the Human Landscape.
