The “not in my backyard” opposition to development has become a common position in an effort to preserve neighborhoods from unwanted projects. But with rising housing costs, a new movement known as “yes in my backyard” has emerged, favoring density and accessibility when it comes to housing development.

On Tuesday, March 19, housing advocate and Abode Communities president Robin Hughes, pro-development activist Sonja Trauss and moderator Dana Cuff, professor of architecture and director of UCLA cityLAB will discuss the intersection of class and economic matters surrounding urban development in their event, “The Growing YIMBY Movement,” at the Hammer Museum at UCLA.

This discussion will begin at 7:30 p.m. Free tickets are required and available at the box office one hour before the program.
