Homes for All: Building Coalitions for Equitable Planning in L.A. County

 

Part of the Housing, Equity and Community Series

The planning of more than 800,000 new homes over the next eight years in Los Angeles County provides an unprecedented opportunity to direct housing toward high-opportunity communities while strengthening protections for those most vulnerable to displacement. On April 9, this morning-long UCLA Luskin Summit event will delve into the lessons that can be learned from coalitions in places such as Seattle, Portland, the East Bay and elsewhere that have achieved political and legislative wins.

This Luskin Summit event is part of the Housing, Equity and Community Series, a UCLA joint endeavor from the Lewis Center for Regional Policy Studies and the Ziman Center for Real Estate.
