Housing Action Coalition Brownbag Relaunch – SB50
AFFORDABLE HOUSING WEEK
The HAC is BACK – by popular demand!
MAY 17, 12:00PM, AT AARP SAN JOSE OFFICE, 111 W ST. JOHN STREET, SUITE 410
Over the last year, SV@Home has been experimenting with innovative ways to spark real, action-oriented conversations on housing policy solutions. We realized, however, that the perfect series was awaiting a rejuvenation!
That’s why we are thrilled to invite you to the relaunch of the Santa Clara County Housing Action Coalition (HAC), a monthly, informal brownbag discussion convening Housers to engage on hot housing topics.
Every month, we’ll select a topic or current event, bring in an expert to give a brief presentation, and then open up the discussion to ask questions, float new ideas, and identify potential areas for shared action. We want your feedback and will be looking to participants to recommend future topics you want to see addressed.
Our goal is to create a space where Housers, community leaders, and newcomers alike can chat with their peers over lunch in a relaxed environment and convert your energy and expertise into advocacy opportunities! All are welcome.
Our first meeting will be over lunch on Friday, May 17th, the closing day of Affordable Housing Week. We’re excited to host a discussion of SB50, its proposed policy solutions to the housing crisis and its prospects moving forward. We’re thrilled that our confirmed special guest(s) for this discussion are:
Louis Mirante, Legislative Director, California YIMBY
Pedro Galvao, State and Regional Policy Manager, Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California (NPH)
So join SV@Home and fellow Housers for an engaging discussion that you can put immediately into advocacy action!
Although meetings of specific importance will be added individually to the calendar, these monthly meetings may be of interest on an ongoing basis:

For details, select HLUET Committee in the drop-down menu in the left sidebar on the County of Santa Clara website.
Housing and Community Development Commission – Typically meets at 5:45pm on the second Thursday of each month. For details, see the Commission calendar on the City of San Jose website.
