YIMBYtown Finale: How Do We Get Home? Abundant Housing for a Sustainable, Equitable Future now available!
7:30pm, Wednesday April 13, 2022
As Portland and cities like it across the country continue to grow, our community is faced with the difficult task of responding to our overlapping lack of affordable housing, emerging climate crisis, and rampant systemic inequality. It’s evident that swift and unapologetically bold change will be necessary to reform our economy, our society, and the shape of our neighborhoods to meet a vision that addresses these challenges.
Hosted by Portland: Neighbors Welcome and Sightline Institute, “How Do We Get Home? Abundant Housing for a Sustainable, Equitable Future” will feature a panel of community leaders focused on the intersections of housing affordability, community design, homelessness and racial justice to discuss how Portland can grow and change in line with our values.
This event will be taped as part of an episode hosted by Oregon Public Broadcasting’s Think Out Loud, and it will be broadcast on OPB at a future date. This event is included in a YIMBYtown 2022 conference ticket, but is also open to the public through the ticket link below.
