Shift the Bay: Reporter Resources

The purpose of this resource guide for local journalists is to provide important at-a-glance housing facts, flag some considerations when covering housing, and offer knowledgeable Bay Area housing justice expert voices for future stories.

There’s been such a leap during the covid-19 crisis in public understanding of the connections between health and racial justice in the Bay Area. It’s important to do the same for housing and racial justice in the Bay Area as our communities move forward with new housing solutions and recover from the many side effects of the pandemic. Covid rent relief and eviction moratorium extensions are top-of-mind for many residents and housing justice advocates as we consider what we must do in this moment and beyond to support our neighbors and communities with safe, stable and affordable places to live.
