Winning at the Ballot: SCANPH Workshop
On January 18th, SCANPH convened a workshop to brief attendees on the upcoming campaign to secure victory for the $4 billion affordable housing bond on the statewide ballot in November. Anya Lawler, Policy Advocate at the Western Center on Law and Poverty, provided attendees an overview of the 15 bills that comprise the state housing package passed in September, including how new changes to funding, regulations, and the development process will have a far-reaching effect. Ray Pearl, Executive Director of the California Housing Consortium, described how the campaign will pursue victory with regional coordination and current progress in organizing the effort.
SCANPH staff Alan Greenlee and Michael Menjivar briefed attendees about how SCANPH will mobilize residents of low-income housing and build a database of our members' political voting power.
Thanks to Ray and Anya for sharing their expertise with SCANPH members.
