Yes In My Back Yard (YIMBY) exists to make housing more affordable and accessible. We do this by serving and growing the YIMBY movement fighting for more housing. We envision an integrated and environmentally sustainable society where every person has access to a safe, affordable home near jobs, services, and opportunity.
We also are home to the YIMBY movement's legal enforcement arm, YIMBY Law. At YIMBY Law, we review public records to identify cities that may be violating state housing law, inform cities of the possible violations, and, if necessary, file litigation to ensure that cities follow the law.
We are the sister organization of YIMBY Action, a network of activists fighting for more inclusive housing policy. Together with YIMBY Action, we build and deploy power to achieve policy change that increases housing in the country's highest-opportunity cities and towns.
