We all know housing supply in California is low — and the rent? Too damn high. But how do we change that? One way is through public policy!
Join the Coalition of Housers on Thursday, March 4th at noon for Legislation & Advocacy 101. This webinar gives an introduction into the public policy process in California, an overview into the newly announced housing bills for 2021, and predictions into this year’s legislative cycle for housing.
