Pathways to Housing Justice Session 2: Charting the Course for Effective Housing Policy

Series Description 

Pathways to Housing Justice: A 3-Part Series on Intersectional Solutions

We all deserve a decent place to live. It’s a matter of basic justice and a measure of who we are as a community. Having a stable, affordable home impacts our health, ability to find and keep a job, success at school, and connection to our communities. Our whole community does better when everyone has good, safe housing.

Housing justice is also racial justice. Generations of exclusionary policies and institutional racism have created an unjust housing system that falls hardest on Black, Indigenous, and other people of color. Addressing the Bay Area’s housing crisis means taking on the underlying inequities baked into how housing is developed and delivered.

There is a path forward, and it’s not one size fits all. No one sector, city, or county can tackle it alone. We can be proud of the progress we have made over the past few years, building broad coalitions that can secure legislative victories, invest in affordable housing, and support advocacy and power-building work.

Together, we can develop an intersectional approach and thrive in our collaboration for effective solutions. It’s up to all of us to fight for housing justice, and philanthropy has an important role to play as we build a Bay Area that moves all of us forward.

Join NCG and the San Francisco Foundation for a series of programs that will discuss:

  • How housing intersects with other critical social issues like health, economic opportunity, and education;
  • Regional and statewide housing justice policy opportunities; and
  • How to get involved in housing advocacy and power-building opportunities.
