What People Say
When the avg. renter spends more than 1/3 of their income on housing, homelessness spikes. Support YIMBY to keep this from happening in more cities.
I really don’t want to be isolated here in Menlo Park when I’m elderly because none of my kids or grandkids can afford homes nearby. We need more homes.
I’ve spent my entire career working to reduce carbon emissions, and I know we will never get to net zero unless we build far more housing in urban areas where people can walk, cycle and ride the bus. That’s why I support YIMBY.
In my town, 94% of workers commute into to town because they cannot afford to live here. I support YIMBY to build housing for all income levels.
One reason I support YIMBY: I got mold sickness from living in a crappy apartment that was all I could afford on a nonprofit salary. A year+ of stomach issues and panic attacks! No one should have to destroy their health to live near their job.
I donate to YIMBY Action because they are the most effective and progressive political force around holding local politicians and municipalities accountable for not providing the basic human right of housing for the people.
There’s so many reasons I support YIMBY but the simplest one is rooted in firsthand experience from being evicted in 2011. The bottom line for me is that housing abundance is one of the best tenant protections there is, and for far too long we’ve propped up landlord power…
I support YIMBY because I’m an urban planning student who follows the research—and it shows we need to enable more housing at *all* income levels if we want a truly sustainable, long-term solution to our housing crisis.
I support YIMBY because there aren’t enough homes for everyone. There aren’t enough homes for our kids, for our teachers, for our future. And with pro-housing policies, we can change that.
I support YIMBY because letting cities build up—instead of mandating that they forever sprawl out—is a non negotiable part of combating climate change.
I donate monthly to YIMBY Action because they champion inclusion and diversity in our neighborhoods, undoing decades of regulations designed to exclude tenants and young people.
