Housing Affordability: A Conversation Guide

The View From Here: Place And Privilege took listeners on a deep dive into the history, politics and economics of affordable housing in Sacramento. We talked to developers and city planners, housing advocates, historians and attorneys, professors, property managers, renters, homeowners and people with no homes to create a one-hour radio documentary, a 10-part podcast and a series of dynamic civic storytelling events to bring our community together to find a way forward. 

This downloadable discussion guide draws on hours of audio content and tested dialogue methods to help you host conversations about housing affordability in your organization or community. It is shaped by our experience working with six organizational partners and 35 community advisers to create on-the-ground community engagement activities that bring diverse residents together to share stories, listen to one another and problem solve. Community engagement is how we serve our community — we listen and provide a space and tools to help tell stories and to create social impact.
