Housing advocates call for higher corporate taxes, more equity

‘This is the moment to save lives’

A powerful group of nonprofits and housing advocates Thursday called for bold statewide reforms and higher corporate taxes to attack California’s homelessness crisis and affordable housing shortage. The 10-year, Roadmap Home 2030 proposal, backed by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and charitable arms of the James Irvine and Conrad N. Hilton families, aims to end homelessness and create 1.2 million affordable homes in California. The sprawling plan — a mix of policy and community activism — calls for far more aggressive action by lawmakers and the business community.
