Sacramento's housing shortage affects everyone from middle-class renters priced out of desirable neighborhoods to millennials who may never be able to afford to own a home to NIMBY and YIMBY homeowners to homeless residents sleeping (and dying) on the steps of City Hall. There just aren't enough affordable places to live.
Capital Public Radio’s upcoming documentary, The View From Here: Place and Privilege, explores the history, politics and economics of housing affordability in California's capitol. In collaboration with community partners, we’re hosting a series of intimate storytelling gatherings that bring diverse residents together to share experiences, listen to one another and explore solutions.
Sign up for one of these Story Circles held on various dates and at different locations around the city. Doors open at 5:30 for food and socializing. Program runs from 6:00 — 8:00 pm.
