How faith communities, cities, and developers can collaborate build affordable housing.
Join us THURSDAY, MARCH 4 @ 5:30 PM.
Despite policy efforts aimed at increasing production, California still has a shortage of affordable housing. City leaders struggle to find space to accommodate new housing development in the face of NIMBY opposition. Faith communities often have unused or under-used space on their campuses. Many congregations have partnered with affordable housing developers to build affordable housing on sites zoned for religious use, and some cities have greased the wheels to make it happen faster! Come hear what is possible from three people who have walked this road!
Honorable Rusty Bailey, Former Mayor of Riverside, CA
Jill Shook, Executive Director, Making Housing and Community Happen
Bishop John Taylor, Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles
Sarah Walker, Senior Project Manager, National Community Renaissance
This panel is aimed at elected officials, city staff, faith community leaders, clergy, and community members who want to say YES! to affordable and attainable housing in their (and God's) backyard!
Co-hosted by People for Housing Orange County, a chapter of YIMBY Action Network, and Abundant Housing LA.
