For the Bay’s Future: New Solutions to the Housing Crisis

There’s no doubt about it: The San Francisco Bay Area is in the midst of a housing crisis. But while people may disagree about the root causes, the costs or the most promising legislation, there’s one thing everyone agrees on: The only hope of solving it is through monumental multi-sector collaboration.

Join the San Francisco Foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the Ford Foundation, Local Initiatives Support Corporation, corporate leaders and housing advocates for a conversation about bold solutions, hosted at The Commonwealth Club.

This event will also celebrate the launch of an exciting new effort to build a more livable, inclusive and vibrant Bay Area. Come learn how a diverse array of partners will protect up to 175,000 households and preserve and produce more than 8,000 homes over the next 5–10 years. The time for incremental change is over.
