Survey Results, Art Exhibit & Kick-off of Affordable Housing Week

This campus-community event will unveil the findings of our county-wide research on the affordable housing crisis in Santa Cruz & Watsonville. We will share the results of over 1700 surveys and interviews with local residents and how they are experiencing the housing crisis. The event also features a visual and literary art exhibit on the meanings of “home.” Finally, the event kicks off Affordable Housing Week, with a wide-range of county organizations and community groups participating in an open discussion of responses to the crisis and sharing information about strategies, campaigns and up-coming events seeking a way forward.
