Description

The Grassroot Institute of Hawaii is pleased to host:

The Right to Couch Surf: Home-sharing in Hawaii

Luncheon featuring Jared Meyer, Senior Research Fellow at the Foundation for Government Accountability

  • Friday, May 26, 2017

  • 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

  • The Pacific Club

It's easier than ever before to rent space in your house, but a movement to crack down on home-sharing may threaten this new and evolving industry.

Meyer says that Hawaii's high rents are mostly the cause of government, not home-sharing platforms like Airbnb. He says that government restrictions on affordable housing, rentals, or even owning a home, have made it difficult for working class families to afford rent.

Does home-sharing have negative impacts on the community...or could companies like Airbnb give local families another chance to make the money they need to afford to live in Hawaii?

Join us for this important discussion! Call (808) 591-9193 with any questions.
