POSTPONED: California's Housing Crisis: An Evening with Conor Dougherty

Join us at Manny's for a discussion on the housing affordability crisis with author Conor Dougherty!

In Golden Gates: Fighting for Housing in America, author Connor Dougherty shares the vast history of California’s housing policies and how those policies have created an uncertain and unaffordable future for many Californians. Through interviews with different stakeholders, Dougherty dives deep into the housing crisis.

On March 19th, we'll have a conversation with Dougherty about California’s housing crisis with a focus on the Bay Area.

The conversation will be moderated by TechEquity’s Executive Director Catherine Bracy. You don't need to have read the book to join us for this event; just come as you are! If you're looking for a brief primer on the topic before the event, we recommend:
