“Tenant protections, homebuilding, and housing subsidies are all essential to improving housing affordability and household stability, but they can often be in tension. How do we build more homes without displacing existing communities?” Shane Phillips, author of the Affordable City, outlines a framework for balancing these goals, and discusses the important role that rent stabilization can play in achieving housing justice.
