Lunch with a Leader: Sonja Trauss, SF Bay Area Renters Federation
February 15, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Conversations about Governance, Policy, and Leadership
Lunch with a Leader provides students, faculty, and members of the public the opportunity to hear ideas from local, state, and national leaders, share their own ideas, and gain inspiration for effective governance in a more intimate and informal setting.
Sonja Trauss, “I’m the principal at the SFBay Area Renters Federation. We agitate in favor of market rate development, because increasing supply is the only way out of SF’s housing problem. I also make websites and merch for local scandals.” SFBARF is an unincorporated club of pro-building, pro-density renters. Housing shortage is bad for renters (and good for homeowners, incidentally). High prices are merely a symptom of the underlying shortage. Fixing prices won’t solve the shortage problem.
