Housing Element Audit Tool (HEAT) Training for SoCal Advocates

Jul 07 Wed 6:00 pm

Every 8 years, cities across California must update their housing elements, a component of the general plan, to determine where and how to build housing in the next few years. This might not sound super important, but it is - for example, housing decides who gets to go to good schools and who gets to be close to jobs.

So, how do we know if the draft Housing Elements are of good quality? Professor Chris Elmendorf (UC Davis) partnered with YIMBY Law to create the Housing Element Audit Tool. This tool is a convenient multiple-choice form, accompanied by an Explainer to help advocates learn more about Housing Element law and policy.

Attend the training to learn how to use the tool to assess your city's housing element! Register here: us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0qcemrqTMsH9djdVpRaWnCLmy87wRzjaJH

The Future of Housing: Facing Our Communities’ Challenges in the 21st Century

Jun 23 Wed 6:00 pm

Zoom

The housing affordability crisis is one of the most significant challenges facing our state. A problem that has been building for decades, the lack of affordable housing impacts local economies, drives up inequality, and lowers the quality of life for millions of Californians. Now more than ever, we need bold and innovative leadership to address the housing crisis head-on.

You’re invited for a conversation between Assemblymember Laura Friedman and Burbank City Councilmember Nick Schultz, as they discuss the way the state and cities can work together to address the housing crisis while combating other challenges, including the climate crisis and transportation infrastructure.

The program will be moderated by Jaime Del Rio from Abundant Housing LA. To join this virtual discussion, please RSVP at one of the links below.
