RNHS’s Changing The Narrative 2.0 provides free Homeownership and Affordable Housing resources to Richmond and East Bay residents
RNHS’s annual Changing The Narrative 2.0 event empowers the underserved communities of Richmond and the East Bay to get educated about how to find affordable housing whether they’re looking to buy or rent. This free event provided attendees with information and resources on everything from first-time homebuyer assistance programs to budgeting and financial literacy programs. RNHS is working tirelessly to address housing inequities and make homeownership a reality for those who may have believed it was unattainable.
Housing Policy and Belonging in Richmond
What does it mean to really belong in Richmond? How do our homes shape how we think of who belongs? What solutions and actions are needed to achieve a city where everyone belongs? The stories, poetry, data, images, and policies that make up this report published by UC Berkeley’s Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society, center on these questions.
Much of the research and creative development of this report was done by the Staying Power Fellows, a group of Richmond residents impacted by the housing crisis who over the past year carried out interviews, analyzed data, read reports and analyzed their own experience. The research in this report also comes from the insights and ongoing work of many Richmond-based organizations and other residents. On June 3, 2017, eight organizations co-sponsored a Citywide Housing Symposium, where over 100 participants discussed housing issues in Richmond and policies to address them. Public spaces for community leaders working on these issues have also been a source and a sounding board for the research, including the GRIP Social Justice Forum and the Richmond Progressive Alliance Housing Action Team.

She’s served in her current position for little more than a year, but in that time she’s made it clear she’ll be showing up and speaking her mind when it counts.
