Homelessness and Affordable Housing are major problem areas in the Bay Area and in California. The Diablo Valley League is looking for someone who is willing to follow issues regarding affordable housing and homelessness within our Diablo Valley geographical area, California and the country. 

This sounds like a huge responsibility.  IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE. If you are already involved in any organization working on Housing or Homelessness, you can just keep us abreast of what that organization is doing.  If you love state legislation, you could just keep us abreast of bills before the legislature that are relevant to Housing and Homelessness.  In other words, if you are willing to take on any small part of this important area of concern for the League, WE NEED YOU.

In the past month the Board of LWVDV has met to assess our ability to meet the needs of all of the many issues that face us today in our cities, counties, state and country.  As a small organization, we have limits.  However, Affordable Housing and Homelessness are important issues which we would like to continue to follow.

The League position regarding Housing and Homelessness is, in brief, that we support equal opportunity in housing.  We support measures to provide state programs to increase the supply of safe, decent, and adequate housing for all Californians.  We support action at all levels of government for the provision of affordable housing for all Californians. This includes supporting programs and policies to provide equal opportunity for access to housing without discrimination based on race, color, gender, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation or disability.

If you are inclined to learn more about this area of concern or if you are already involved with it, please contact Sue Brandy at brandylcsw [at] gmail.com
