Affordable Housing Explained
Time & Location
About the Event
Join us on Tuesday, November 17 from 5:00 - 6:30 pm for a workshop and panel to delve into rich conversations about the state of affordable housing and the work being done to make Marin more affordable. Our workshop will explore how people of different incomes and backgrounds afford housing in Marin. The panel will feature the diverse perspectives of individuals who produce, protect, and preserve housing in Marin and how we can make our county’s housing more attainable moving forward.
The workshop will place attendees in the shoes of someone seeking housing in Marin. Linda Jackson’s interactive activity will help attendees empathize with the difficult choices and sacrifices Marin’s low-income community members make and motivate them to advocate for a more affordable Marin.
The panel will focus on Marin's leaders working to make our county more affordable through the production, protection, and preservation of housing. We’ll delve into the terms “affordability” and “affordable housing” to gain a deeper understanding of what they really mean and learn about our panelists’ perspectives – why is affordability important, what is the impact of their work, how they envision Marin’s housing future, and what we can do to get there together? Stay tuned for our panelist announcement!
