COMING SOON: The View From Here - Place And Privilege

Sacramento's housing shortage affects everyone from middle-class renters priced out of desirable neighborhoods to NIMBY homeowners to homeless residents sleeping (and dying) on the steps of City Hall. There just aren't enough affordable places to live. The View From Here: Place and Privilege will explore the history, politics and economics of housing affordability in California's capitol. We'll also map the crisis through the personal stories of neighbors who are hardest hit and living on the edge.
