The Bay Area needs thousands more housing units to meet the needs of those who live here and want to live here, but generations of government policies have also created stark racial segregation, even in the face of a rapidly diversifying region. Whether through planning, education or a lawsuit, how do we address the housing shortage and create more integrated, mixed-income communities throughout the region? Join us for a conversation about the different approaches taken to push for more housing in Bay Area suburbs.
