In this episode we speak with Brian Hanlon, CEO of California YIMBY. YIMBY, standing for “Yes In My Back Yard” is a pro-development movement that aims to build more housing in urban areas where affordable homes and rents have become unobtainable for many people. Brian discusses with us the movements origins, meaning, goals, and initiatives moving forward to build more equitable, affordable cities.
