While NIMBY (an acronym for the phrase “Not in My Backyard”) has become a common position, rising housing costs have spurred a new grassroots YIMBY movement, whose members favor development, density, and accessibility. YIMBY activist Sonja Trauss, housing advocate and Abode Communities president Robin Hughes, and moderator Dana Cuff of UCLA cityLAB discuss the intersection of class and economic issues surrounding urban development.
