My goal is to increase affordable housing for low-income workers and their families in the Bay Area. California has enacted climate-change laws mandating decreased carbon emissions and higher density land-use. These laws present both a danger that low-income voices will be excluded from the table and a distinct opportunity to promote housing equity. Through coalition building, state policy advocacy, and local administrative and legal action, I will leverage climate-change laws to secure greater workforce housing near quality jobs and public transit.
