You Are Invited!

Join the Center on Thursday, October 14th at 11:00 a.m. for this special livestreamed event!
Heirs’ Property is the leading cause of involuntary land loss in Black communities.
Heirs’ Property is land passed down informally from generation to generation, often because
landowners died without a will. In the absence of a will, the land is considered jointly owned by
all heirs, split between multiple people regardless of whether they live on the land, pay the taxes,
or have ever set foot on it. This fractured land leaves owners vulnerable to developers and
timber harvesters, tax sales, and forced partition sales.
Preservation, World Wildlife Fund, and Kimberly-Clark for an initiative to help landowners
deal with these issues.
JOIN US for our livestream OCTOBER 14TH to discuss the challenges of #HeirsProperty and
how landowners can preserve their property. Register here:
