Building Affordable Housing in God's Backyard!

Despite policy efforts aimed at increasing production, California still has a shortage of affordable housing. City leaders struggle to find space to accommodate new housing development in the face of NIMBY opposition. Faith communities often have unused or under-used space on their campuses. Many congregations have partnered with affordable housing developers to build affordable housing on sites zoned for religious use, and some cities have greased the wheels to make it happen faster! Come hear what is possible from three people who have walked this road!

Honorable Rusty Bailey, Former Mayor of Riverside, CA
Bishop John Taylor, Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles
Sarah Walker, Senior Project Manager, National Community Renaissance

This panel is aimed at elected officials, city staff, faith community leaders, clergy, and community members who want to say YES! to affordable and attainable housing in their (and God's) backyard!

From Ally to Advocate: A Reckoning with Racism

Feb 11 Thu 6:00 pm

Virtual

In honor of Black History Month, we are partnering with Safe Place for Youth and Climate Resolve to host the second session of our "From Ally to Advocate" series! This takes place on Thursday, February 11th from 6:00 - 7:30 pm. Our guest speakers are Roderick Hall, Director of Organizing with Abundant Housing LA, and Chase Engelhardt, Climate Resilience Coordinator with Climate Resolve. We'll be discussing historic redlining on the Westside, the environmental impact this has on our unhoused neighbors who are disproportionately BIPOC, as well as what folks can do about it. We hope to see you there!

"From Ally to Advocate" is a series sponsored by Safe Place for Youth. This series creates a safe space for SPY Volunteers and the community at large, where they can get educated, collaborate, and advocate on systemic issues facing SPY Members. The only requirement is to come with an openness to learn. Everyone and anyone is welcome!

Pasadena's 2021 Housing Element: Planning Just and Fair Housing Solutions for our City

Jan 23 Sat 3:00 pm

Virtual

The Pasadena Affordable Housing Coalition invites you to attend an important community forum on the City's next Housing Element! Required by State law, the process of updating the Housing Element is an opportunity to create a comprehensive plan for tackling our affordable housing crisis.

You'll learn the State laws and policies that govern Housing Elements as well as ways our community can shape policies that will protect tenants, reduce homelessness, prevent displacement, and provide pathways for home ownership.

The Pasadena Affordable Housing Coalition's goal is simple: everyone in our city should have access to safe and affordable housing. The Housing Element process is our chance to work together as a community to accomplish that goal. Please plan to participate in this valuable webinar!
