California faces a housing crisis of extraordinary scale and complexity.  High rents and home prices—coupled with the lingering impacts of the COVID pandemic—are contributing to housing insecurity, high rates of homelessness, and deepening racial inequality.  The politics of housing in the state can also feel intractable: cities continue to rely on exclusionary zoning tactics to thwart new supply, while developers, labor unions, NIMBYs, YIMBYs, environmentalists, and tenant advocates all stake out conflicting positions of what is needed to increase affordability and sustainability. This presentation will review the origins of California’s housing crisis, its implications, and lift up the policies that will be needed to chart a course to improved affordability, greater household stability, increased racial equity, and reduced homelessness across the state.
