Developing more affordable housing is essential to ending poverty, supporting our local economy, and maintaining a decent quality of life for all residents. Join the Tri-Valley Anti-Poverty Collaborative (TVAPC) on October 24th from 7:30-10:00 am for an important presentation on the role of housing and what can be done to make sure housing needs are met for everyone in the Tri-Valley. The event will be held at Hub 925: 5341 Owens Ct., Pleasanton, CA 94588.
Keynote speakers include David Garcia, Policy Director at UC Berkeley’s Terner Center for Housing Innovation, and Gloria Bruce, Executive Director of East Bay Housing Organizations. Mr. Garcia will discuss the origins of the current housing crisis in California and potential innovative solutions to creating more homes and affordability for individuals from all walks of life. Ms. Bruce will discuss how affordable housing and homelessness are linked as part of the same crisis of poverty and inequity, and will introduce the “3 Ps” concept of “production, protection, and preservation” as three critical ways to make sure that people can have access to quality affordable housing.
