Join an Identity Group

What Are Identity Groups?

Many YIMBYs hold marginalized identities or face frequent systemic barriers, and therefore face unique challenges when advocating for housing, finding stable and affordable housing, and otherwise engaging in their communities. Identity Groups are meant to hold space for YIMBYs to connect, relate to one another, and speak up about housing.

More Ways to Get Involved

Top Resources

We've carefully put together a list of the best videos, podcasts, and articles to learn about housing policy. Our resources explore the impact of housing supply on costs, the benefits of density, the role of zoning and other local regulations, and the racism that contributed to our housing crises.

Campaign for Fair Housing Elements

Every eight years, California cities have to make a plan for new housing in the city in order to meet the projected need. Cities often try to game the process and build less housing, so we need volunteers to help make sure cities make good plans!

Start a Conversation

Start conversations about housing and show your support by wearing YIMBY apparel and home goods.
