Funders Together to End Homelessness and California YIMBY are hosting this briefing and networking opportunity to introduce funders to Black and Latinx led/serving grassroots organizations that want to deepen their work in housing affordability and center racial equity in the process. The organizations involved in California YIMBY's Housing Working Group have political influence, but they are not yet engaged in local policy-making. For featured organizations, $50K-100K could be transformative for their housing programs and elevate their advocacy to the regional and state level.
Participants of this call will hear directly from Black and Latinx emerging voices for housing reform. These leaders are embedded in their communities, working to resolve housing challenges for their constituents.
This funder briefing is designed to bring more BIPOC groups to the table, and to expand their capacity to bring in new ideas and participate in setting the housing reform agenda. These groups are members of a new Housing Working Group convened by California YIMBY and are prioritizing these housing reforms:
Ending the housing shortage
Ending discriminatory housing policies
Increasing homeownership opportunities
Prioritizing communities vulnerable to displacement
Bringing down skyrocketing housing costs
During this California Homelessness & Housing Policy Funder Network call, participants will:
- Learn about the Housing Working Group.
- Engage with Black and Latinx led/serving grassroots organizations to deepen the work in their communities.
- Engage in discussion around informing and supporting the statewide initiative.
