Who We Are

California YIMBY  is California’s leading statewide housing advocacy organization dedicated to ending the housing shortage and making California an affordable place for everyone to live, work, and raise a family. California YIMBY rejects the policy and political status quo and works to realize fundamental evidence-based change to California’s housing policies, which would benefit tens of millions of people. 

Founded in 2017, California YIMBY has redefined the national housing debate by developing best-in-class policy, sponsoring and passing major legislation, reshaping the public narrative in favor of more homes, and building and activating a statewide YIMBY movement.
