AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND HOMELESSNESS
— causes, connections, and organizing for radical change

                                        With Boona Cheema and Steve Barton


Stephen E. Barton, PhD is a long-time consultant to the Rent Stabilization Board, former Housing Director of the City of Berkeley, and an independent researcher/writer in evolutionary economics and community-based democracy. His analysis of rapidly rising rents in Berkeley led to passage of Measure U1 in 2016, increasing business license fees for commercial landlords, and providing the basis of the $100 Housing Bond on the ballot this November.

Boona Cheema is a recognized social justice pioneer, a Unitarian minister and founder/Executive Director (retired) of Better Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency. For 40 years, she, and BOSS, continue working with people experiencing poverty, disability, and the lack of affordable housing in Berkeley and Alameda County, providing jobs, shelter, and respectful aid while addressing root causes and solutions.
