CALIFORNIA IS FOR EVERYONE.
California YIMBY is a community of neighbors who welcome more neighbors.
We believe that an equitable California begins with abundant, secure, affordable housing. We focus on housing and land use policy at the state and local level to ensure grassroots organizers and city leaders have the tools they need to accelerate home building.
Our current housing policies have set up a lose-lose situation, where newcomers compete with long-term residents for sparse – and therefore increasingly expensive – housing.
We are building a grassroots movement and empowering local YIMBY organizations to lay the groundwork for more housing construction for people of all income levels, which will reduce displacement, temper home prices and rents, and allow California communities to grow responsibly.
LET’S MAKE OUR STATE AFFORDABLE, TOGETHER.
The YIMBY movement is growing, but we need your support to win.
