In 2023 Cambridge can expand the number of affordable housing units in our City – but only with your help! To get ready, Cambridge’s pro-housing advocacy group, A Better Cambridge, and their state-wide counterpart, Abundant Housing MA, are hosting a joint event for folks in Cambridge to learn more about how you can help solve the housing crisis. In 2023, ABC is pushing to end exclusionary zoning and strengthen the Affordable Housing Overlay in Cambridge, and across Greater Boston, AHMA is leading Massachusetts’ largest-ever pro-housing organizing campaign to pass state-mandated zoning reforms in 175 communities.
Come out to learn more and meet your neighbors! RSVP Below.

Our lived experiences in housing are just as important as the technical experience we bring to our housing advocacy.
A home is so much more than a physical place- a home provides refuge, stability, the facilitation of connection and access to opportunities. In this social creative arts event, participants will explore what home means to them through creative writing/arts prompts.
Participants will hone and share their stories of home as it relates to their activism and also leave with resources/tools to bring arts as activism techniques into their own activism and pro-housing group.
On August 10, DHCD issued the final guidelines for Multi-Family Zoning requirements for MBTA Communities. The guidelines are finalized, it’s time to focus on implementation! Guest Speakers include Chris Kluchman, Deputy Director Community Services Division at MA Dept. of Housing and Community Development (DHCD). Additional guests will be announced as confirmed.
