How is Housing Policy Climate Policy?

How well do you understand the links between housing policy and our climate goals? Many current housing policies undermine our ability to reduce transportation emissions—the biggest source of climate pollution in California. These policies also affect issues of environmental justice, equity, building electrification and affordability. Come learn about these connections and how you can help support housing policy that moves us toward climate solutions and justice. Co-presented by Urban Environmentalists and the Bay Area Housing Advocacy Coalition.
