Sacramento's housing crisis affects everyone from middle-class renters priced out of desirable neighborhoods to millennials who may never be able to afford to own a home to NIMBY and YIMBY homeowners to homeless residents sleeping (and dying) on the steps of City Hall. There just aren't enough affordable places to live. 

CapRadio brought wildly diverse residents face-to-face through intimate story circles to talk about housing, hear one another and envision the way forward. It’s an experiment in deep listening, radical hospitality and bridge building (Watch a video to see a story circle in action). Story circles also featured a mobile portrait studio where guests could share their hopes, dreams, struggles and solutions.

Explore what story circle participants had to say about affordable housing in California’s capital.
