YIMBYtown is a three-day gathering for grassroots community organizers, political leaders, educators, and everyday people to identify problems, create solutions, share resources on the issues that impact housing on local, state, and national levels.
Boston YIMBYtown’s goal is to establish a model of organizing that builds bridges to new allies, promotes racial diversity and equity, and wins housing campaigns.

YIMBYtown is a great place to meet others from across the continent and across the sea.
