Action Item for This Week:As a result of YOUR advocacy, Governor Newsom increased our region’s home building target to 1.3 million; and the Southern California Association of Governments assigned the majority of that housing target to job-rich coastal cities.
The next step is for local governments to update the Housing Elements of their general plans to show the locations where housing can be built and the policies and strategies necessary to meet their targets.
After you sign up for the LA Housing Element Task Force, invite a coworkerto a late lunch protest on Thursday in DTLA— we are protesting “Fix the City”, an ultra-NIMBY group which is suing the City of LA over its efforts to increase zoned housing capacity along the Expo, promote housing density, and subsidize affordable housing.
And don’t forget to sign up for our November Panel Series, Renters & the Housing Crisis, featuring Richard Bloom, Alex Fisch, and Michael Lens.
AHLA’s Year End Celebration! Dec 12 Thu 6:30 pm – Thu 8:30 pm, DTLA. Featuring guest speaker and RHNA champion Culver City Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells.

With Guest Speaker Meghan Sahli-Wells, RHNA Champion!
AHLA has a lot to celebrate this year! Help us end our first year as a funded organization by celebrating our accomplishments and giving thanks to our hard-working volunteers. Thanks to AHLA members and volunteers, we were able to support individual housing projects, advocate for better community plans, support pro-housing and tenant protection on the state level, and successfully advocate for over 1.3 million homes in the SCAG region, concentrated in coastal, job-rich cities near transit! Our Guest Speaker, Culver City Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells told SCAG that they were the "titanic," heading to disaster on housing. Thanks to her, our amazing volunteers, and other pro-housing advocates and elected officials, SCAG voted for a better plan.
Let's get together over beer and take the moment to recognize our successes, and the bigger wins down the road as we enter 2020. Drinks and food will be provided!
