In 2016, Housing Virginia conducted its first round of “Overcoming NIMBY” trainings aimed at equipping housing advocates and providers with the tools necessary to counter common opposition to more affordable homes in their communities. This year, Housing Virginia is launching its next round of “Overcoming NIMBY” trainings with all new material and recommendations. Attendees will learn what NIMBY-ism (Not In My Backyard) is, why our current messaging often does more harm than good, and how new groundbreaking social research can help us get to “YES” in our back yard. These trainings are encouraged for anyone who aims to build, provide, or advocate for more homes available to persons at all incomes in their neighborhoods.
