This Saturday and Sunday, we're kicking off our affordable and teacher housing ballot measure with two sessions teaching folks to organize and volunteer to gather signatures for our campaign. In order to collect signatures for our ballot proposition, you must attend a training session and get certified.

This is the first weekend, and we'll have more of these in the future. The sessions are short and will be lead by veteran organizers who will teach you best methods for approaching people, speaking about our measure, and activating your network.

RSVP on Facebook to either our Saturday or Sunday event - www.facebook.com/yimbyaction

We're thrilled about our ballot measure, which will streamline affordable and teacher housing for the first time in San Francisco history, but we need your help to make sure it gets on the ballot.

We'll need 75,000 signatures in the coming months—so help us get this off the ground by volunteering or donating.

We’re running a ballot measure!

Next year, we’ll have an initiative to grant by-right approval to 100% affordable housing in San Francisco, saving time and money for non-profit affordable housing developers. Donate and volunteer today to qualify our groundbreaking, by-right approval for 100% affordable housing measure for the June 2018 ballot.

This ballot measure is a critical step toward ending our housing shortage and creating homes for everyone who wants to be part of this diverse, welcoming city we all love.

You can help by donating to our signature effort and joining our volunteers to get this off the ground!

For the housing wonks: We're running a ballot measure to grant by-right approval for 100% affordable housing and housing build on school district property in San Francisco. We're fighting for affordable and teacher housing built faster!

This ballot measure is a critical step towards ending our city's housing shortage that will save time and money for non-profit affordable housing developers. You can help by gathering signatures and raising funds!

We need over 50,000 signatures to qualify for the ballot next year, which means we'll need YOU. We need you joining us to canvass at farmer's markets, knock on doors, and raise money for this important measure.

Help us get this measure off the ground!

Go to yimbyaction.org/prop/ to volunteer. If you gather enough signatures or collect enough money, you'll be invited to our holiday party!

Support Housing near Google at Mountain View City Council
Tuesday, September 26, 2017, 6:30pm
City of Mountain View - City Hall 500 Castro St, Mountain View, California 94041

This is a big one: The Mountain View city council may kill a proposal for up to 10,000 units of housing near Google's new campus on Tuesday, opting for as few as 1,500 units in the lots nearby after city staff recommended a dramatically smaller project than zoning allows.

Google's new 595,000 square foot campus was giving the greenlight earlier this year and will bring thousands of jobs to the region. We must demand Mountain View to allow housing in the area — councilmembers have already expressed disapproval of the max housing option, citing traffic and "quality of life."

Billions in lower-income housing incentives nailed down by California Democratic leaders

California’s Democratic-controlled Legislature announced Tuesday a package of housing deals aimed at addressing the state’s unprecedented affordability crisis. A bill imposing a real estate transaction fee was amended to be more attractive to moderate Democrats by giving local governments more control of the proceeds.

Senator Scott Wiener's housing streamlining bill that forces cities that ignore their regional housing goals to expedite housing through the entitlement process is up in the Assembly! Everyone is talking about the impact it could have on housing across the state. Some of us are going up tomorrow, Wednesday, morning for the last Committee Hearing in Sacramento!

Contact your Assemblymember, especially over social media! They need to hear that there is loud public support! You can find their contact and social information by using the new YIMBY Scorecard: sankarravi.github.io/yimbyscor...
