Women Build Stronger Communities
What is Virtual Women Build?
Women Build 2020 was virtual for the first time ever!
This year’s Women Build highlighted women’s stories of resiliency; uniting and empowering us to help solve the housing crisis here in the San Gabriel Valley.
Why Resiliency? Women are often faced with adversities such as the lack of pay equity, the lack of representation in leadership roles and the lack of access to affordable housing.
The Issue: In LA County, 60% of renters cannot afford where they live, the wage gap that exists between men and women makes it more difficult for women to access affordable housing. The result is an increasing number of women living in substandard, unsafe and unaffordable conditions. Add in the loss of wages and unemployment due to the current pandemic, and the need for affordable housing will increase.
Virtual Women Build is the platform needed to:
- Recognize that women are disproportionately affected by the housing crisis
- Highlight the stories of resilient women who are currently in the fight for affordable housing
- Unite women of all backgrounds to put an end to the housing crisis
