“THERE CAN BE NO FAIRNESS OR JUSTICE IN A SOCIETY IN WHICH SOME LIVE IN HOMELESSNESS, OR IN THE SHADOW OF THAT RISK, WHILE OTHERS CANNOT EVEN IMAGINE IT.” ~ JORDAN FLAHERTY
On July 24, 2019 The Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce hosted an Economic Briefing: Housing Supply & Affordability at the Fields. I fervently want to understand the most viable solutions to our housing crisis. There is immense potential to address economic prosperity in LA that involves all sectors! I am inspired to learn more about the housing landscape in California. A great resource is a report called California’s Housing Future: Challenges and Opportunities. Final Statewide Housing Assessment 2025. The lack of supply and rising costs are compounding growing inequality and without intervention, much of the housing growth is expected to overlap significantly with disadvantaged communities and areas with less job availability.
