The League of Women Voters of the Bay Area
We believe in the power of women to create a more perfect democracy
We value Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
LWV Bay Area
The League of Women Voters Bay Area’s Social Policy-Housing position includes higher-density housing, housing near transit, inclusionary zoning, incentives for production and rehabilitation of affordable housing, and establishment of a regional trust fund among other proposals. Therefore, we agree with the principles that led to the Technical Committee’s consensus around the ten elements of the Compact. We anticipate that some of the elements may be tweaked as the State Legislature refines the plan.
League Positions are developed after our members investigate the pros and cons of an issue, and after our members reach a consensus. LWVBA positions address Regional Government, Regional Planning, Environment, Natural Resources, Hazardous Materials Management, Social Policy, Surface Transportation, and Airport Transportation.
