How to find us

Look for Raines' black Cohousing Coach(driver)'s hat and green Ask Me About Cohousing button. Note that the event is not primarily about cohousing, but we've seen lots of interest in affordability in housing.

(not cohousing-specific, but very relevant to our efforts to co-create affordable community)

There is a solution to the Affordable Housing Crisis

Introducing the Berkeley Progressive Alliance and our Affordable Housing Platform

Berkeley could build at least 100 units of affordable housing a year, if we raise funds for the Housing Trust Fund. Hear about practical solutions that will raise the money needed. Prepare for the 2016 Election by making plans to elect a mayor, city council members, and rent board commissioners who will represent all of us, not just the 1%. Speakers include:

• Max Anderson - Berkeley City Councilmember District 3 (South Berkeley)

• Ben Bartlett - member, Berkeley Planning Commission and District 3 City Council candidate

• Kate Harrison, Berkeley Progressive Alliance and National/State Politics Chair of the Wellstone Democratic Renewal Club
