lection Season is Here!
And the Yimby's are Canvassing near you...
Last weekend, The Yimby Political Action Team started getting the message out to voters! Volunteers knocked on over 300 doors, dropping YIMBY literature and speaking with voters. The response was overwhelmingly positive, with so many people literally thanking volunteers for letting them know which candidates were pro-housing! Read more at sfyimby.org.
Come Canvassing with YIMBY!
The Yimby Political Action Fund is also asking for donations. Funds will go to printing and other costs of running a brilliant campaign. We need your help to prove that the Yimbys are a force to be reckoned with!
Share with your network!
Another way to get involved is to throw a Yimby House Party. If you live in an apartment building, it's a vital way to reach voters. Have a party with your friends at a bar, host a fundraiser or a just fun chat about housing with booze! These are super easy, and we help you with ideas and more. If you'd like to host a YimbyParty, we need you! Email Laura@growsanfrancisco.org
