Last fall, MEDA played a crucial role in Proposition I, an 18-month moratorium on any Mission residential construction that was not 100 percent affordable. The grassroots campaign galvanized local residents and brought national attention not only to the Mission’s housing crisis, but to the City as a whole. As the Mission’s Latino population continues to decrease while luxury housing developments increase, MEDA is prioritizing saving the community’s unique character by investing in policy and advocacy strategies that provide affordable-housing solutions for all working-class and middle-income individuals. IMPACT 15K+ Signatures collected in just 19 days to put Proposition I on the November 2015 ballot. IMPACT 10th Mission placed in the top 10 in voter turnout out of 26 neighborhoods — a first. Advocating for equitable policy. Creating innovative partnerships. That’s how MEDA is responding to the displacement crisis, exercising adaptive leadership to devise long-term solutions. 7
