While representation is a crucial aspect of inclusive governance, it alone cannot solve the region’s long-standing inequities. Join us along with the Bay Area Equity Atlas and Bay Rising for a webinar exploring our latest research on the diversity of Bay Area elected officials and strategies for ensuring that local policymakers advance bold solutions that build a more just and equitable region for all.
We will also look at the newest research on landlord elected officials and tenant protection legislation in the Bay Area. This analysis explores the impact of real estate interests among elected officials on tenant protection legislation, revealing disparities and potential conflicts of interest, emphasizing the need for diverse representation to address housing affordability challenges and create equitable housing policies in the region.
The webinar will be presented in English, with live Spanish translation available for registered attendees.
