Type Policy Brief or Report
Year 2012
Level City or Town

Policy Areas Civil Rights, Community Development, Democracy & Governance, Economic Justice, Housing, Public Safety, Public Spaces
In this report, we introduce real-world examples of alternative solutions and responses to the housing crisis—rooted in permanent affordability and democratic community control—that people are actively working on in the Bay Area and beyond. It is time to move past the current for-profit market system and the crisis it has created. We must move boldly in a different direction—towards an understanding that housing is a human right.
