In an attempt to further understand the housing needs of our union members, SEIU 521 partnered with 52 students from UCSC’s Labor Studies Department to study how the affordable housing crisis impacts those of us who live or work in Santa Cruz County.
The purpose of the UCSC research project – No Place Like Home: Santa Cruz Displacement and Commuting – is to document the housing concerns of those who work in and serve Santa Cruz County.
Mark your calendars – on October 18, UCSC students will present their findings, and provide a space for us to discuss solutions to this crisis.

The purpose of the UCSC research project, titled No Place Like Home: Santa Cruz Displacement and Commuting, is to document the housing concerns of those who work in and serve Santa Cruz County.
Join us on October 18, where UCSC students will share findings from their new study of housing issues faced by those that work for and serve the Santa Cruz community. The event will also provide an opportunity to engage in a communitywide conversation on solutions, featuring a panel discussion of housing policies, including renter protections (rent control and just cause eviction) and the preservation and production of more affordable housing.
