The San Francisco Bay Area, and California generally, has an
extreme housing shortage.
This Housing Shortage is causing unacceptably high home prices and rents. High housing costs kneecap our ability to save money, force us into crowded conditions, and trap us in jobs and housing conditions that are inadequate. They make it impossible for San Francisco to continue to be an engine of opportunity or social mobility. The shortage of housing close to jobs forces us to commute long hours, increasing carbon emissions and robbing us of time with our families. We must build housing everywhere in the Bay Area to end the shortage. Build Housing Now!
