ROI of Action

This isn’t a technology problem

An end to cynicism

YIMBY has already won popular opinion

We have swayed elections, but we need to win more

How can we fix San Francisco

1. Get pro-housing and pro-tech people on the DCCC.

3. Join or Donate to YIMBY Action

4. Donate to re-election campaigns of pro-housing electeds

5. Volunteer

6. Share

Let’s go

Thanks to Keith Mosher and Morgan Elizabeth T'Felt
