There's a growing housing disparity across the United States. Corporations and wealthy individuals are consolidating more property as the path to homeownership becomes more elusive. In California alone, there's a housing shortage of 1.5 million units, and renters account for over half of the market. With greater demand and rising rents, homelessness is also increasing. Legislators and developers are critical to how we address this issue, as are landlords and tenants, but our actions are framed by our thinking about housing.
