Compliance Governance Lead, Lithic
San Francisco, CA
I moved to San Francisco for a job, but I also came here because it is the kind of city where I could be myself fully and without reservation as an out trans woman. I’ve made so many friends and watched them leave because it costs too much to live here.
Why Housing Matters
Everyone who wants the opportunity to live someplace should have it and that means providing safe and affordable homes for everyone.
Why I Support YIMBY Action
I started showing up because the message matters, but I kept showing up because the people I get to do advocacy with every day. It’s a hard challenge, trying to get our cities to build more homes, to make the process more equitable and make it take less time because that hurts everyone, especially our most vulnerable citizens, and doing that kind of advocacy has its ups and downs. It’s great to have a group of folks to celebrate with, or commiserate with, depending on the day, and that’s what YIMBY Action is.
