Event description
A targeted conversation on how the housing crisis impacts renters and what policymakers are doing to address it

About this Event

Join Abundant Housing LA for a panel discussion on the impacts of the housing crisis on renters.

On the panel will be CA State Assemblymember Richard Bloom (D-Santa Monica), who was instrumental in passing AB 1482 in the 2019 state legislative session , which caps rent hikes at 5% plus inflation. Assemblymember Bloom has also been actively involved in Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) reform and holding the region accountable for a compliant RHNA methodology.

He will be joined by Michael Lens, Associate Faculty Director of the UCLA Lewis Center for Regional Policy Studies; Associate Professor of Urban Planning and Public Policy. Professor Lens' work evaluates the potential for housing policy to reduce this separation by focusing on neighborhood safety and access to jobs.

Alex Fisch, Councilmember in Culver City, will also be joining to share his perspective on the ways that Culver City is considering its renting population as it makes new housing policies, including rent freeze.

The panel will be moderated by Leonora Camner, Managing Director of Abundant Housing LA.

There will be snacks & beverages.
