Yes in God’s Back Yard

Lisa Williams

Lisa Williams is pastor of San Pedro United Methodist Church. She has helped lead a movement to shelter and house the un-housed in San Pedro and throughout Los Angeles County. She has worked with San Pedro United Methodist Church to create a vision and plan for an empty lot on the church’s property to become permanent, affordable housing.

Pastor Lisa Williams will explain how she addressed NIMBYism (“Not in My Back Yard”) by creating a vision and a plan to build supportive housing on an empty lot on her church’s property (YIGBY-“Yes in God’s Back Yard). She will explain how she became a catalyst for building stronger relationships and creating conversations in the community with elected officials, community leaders,  service providers and those who are fearful of their homeless
neighbors .
