Open General Board Meeting
President, UNA Southern California Division
Keynote: What You Don't Know About The Housing Crisis....And It's Happening Globally
Housing is quickly moving out of reach with families outbid on homes and tenants
struggling with steep rent increases and evictions. Homelessness is now a global
problem, even in countries with social safety nets. The Pandemic accelerated this
“Go to“ solutions like increasing housing supply and density only exacerbate the
problem, maddeningly, for elected officials, desperately seeking solutions.
In this presentation, Sharon Byrne walks us through why housing prices are
escalating and how it’s affecting the world’s cities. Sharon will also present
solutions from forward looking cities and countries trying to protect their citizens’
access to housing. She recently presented these facts to the Little Hoover
Commission meeting and has worked on California’s housing legislation.
