“When there’s a crisis in the community, we help our neighbors. A new movement is bringing back this tradition to address the housing crisis.” —Konstantin Hatcher, Organizing Director
“The housing crisis in our communities is part of a deeper problem; we’re working to address the systemic issues.”— Vincent Jones, Southern California Political Director & Senior Advisor
“Housing is important to me—I was raised in a home passed down from our grandparents and made affordable by federal subsidies for veterans. It’s important to have a home, if my family didn’t have one, I don’t know where I’d be right now.”— Joshua, YIMBY Activist
The California housing crisis has made it impossible for people of all ages to afford a home in LA.
We need to build homes in areas that have great jobs, schools, services, and public transit. We are tired of high rents, long commutes, and the air pollution and asthma that disproportionately impacts our communities.
We need to ensure that affordable housing is present in every Los Angeles community.
California YIMBY is a movement of people saying “Yes In My Backyard” to more homes where we actually live and work.
We’re a community of neighbors who welcome more neighbors.
Most importantly, we believe that an equitable California begins with abundant, secure, affordable housing — for all.
