Event description

Description

Generation Priced Out by Randy Shaw is a call to action on one of the most talked-about issues of our time: how skyrocketing rents and home values are pricing the working and middle classes out of urban America. Randy Shaw tells the powerful stories of tenants, politicians, homeowner groups, developers, and activists in over a dozen cities impacted by the national housing crisis. From San Francisco to New York, Seattle to Denver, and Los Angeles to Austin, Generation Priced Out challenges progressive cities to reverse rising economic and racial inequality.

On February 28th we'll have a conversation with the author about his work. Randy Shaw is a housing activist in San Francisco and points to the Bay's housing crisis as a case study for how how boomer homeowners restrict millennials’ access to housing in big cities, a generational divide that increasingly dominates city politics. Doors will open at 6pm and the discussion will being at 6:30pm.

We recommend picking up the book from your favorite local bookstore like Wolfman Bookstore in Oakland or Dog Eared Books in San Francisco.
