How Will L.A.’s Next Mayor Shape Affordable Housing and Homelessness Policies?

The mayoral race in Los Angeles 2022 presents an important change in leadership that will impact the number one issue that voters have addressed: our homelessness and affordable housing crisis. This issue is at the top of the mind for a majority of Angelenos, and we want to see our local government act like it’s our most pressing crisis. SCANPH and Housing for a Stronger LA are convening a Mayoral Candidates Forum to engage in a dialogue with the candidates and to hear about their plans to ensure that every resident has a decent, safe, sustainable and affordable place to live.

Date: Wednesday, April 20, 2022
