In the past five years, the median price of a house in L.A. has doubled. Average rent on a two-bedroom apartment is now over $2,900. Your household would have to earn over $100,000 to afford that. Those kinds of prices have led to the gentrification of once-neglected neighborhoods and leave many Angelenos wondering, who is L.A. for?

Come out to hear a lively discussion of solutions to L.A.’s housing crisis. Why is this happening now? Is it possible to build our way out of the problem? Can anything be done to avoid L.A. becoming as expensive as San Francisco or New York? In the L.A. of the future, can you find a place to call home?

The L.A. of the future will have new trains, new apartment buildings and new industries. Will it have a place for you?
