Friend, we hope you can make it to our November Panel Series – Renters & the Housing Crisis on November 25th.
Join Abundant Housing LA for a panel discussion on the impacts of the housing crisis on renters.
Time: Monday, November 25, 2019 at 6:30 PM – 8 PM
Location: Helms Design Center, 8745 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA 90232
On the panel will be CA State Assemblymember Richard Bloom (D-Santa Monica), who was instrumental in passing AB 1482 in the 2019 state legislative session , which caps rent hikes at 5% plus inflation. Assemblymember Bloom has also been actively involved in Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) reform and holding the region accountable for a compliant RHNA methodology.
He will be joined by Michael Lens, Associate Faculty Director of the UCLA Lewis Center for Regional Policy Studies; Associate Professor of Urban Planning and Public Policy. Professor Lens’ work evaluates the potential for housing policy to reduce this separation by focusing on neighborhood safety and access to jobs.
Alex Fisch, Councilmember in Culver City, will also be joining to share his perspective on the ways that Culver City is considering its renting population as it makes new housing policies, including rent freeze.
The panel will be moderated by Leonora Camner, Managing Director of Abundant Housing LA. There will be snacks & beverages.

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!
