KCBS-AM 740 (SAN FRANCISCO) -- The on-going housing crisis in the Bay Area has created a formidable new movement of pro-housing activists: YIMBYs.

That’s YES in My Backyard ... and their push to elect Mayor London Breed in San Francisco marked them as a political force to be reckoned with.

For more on the YIMBY impact, KCBS Radio Anchor Curtiss Kim spoke with Jason McDaniel, an associate professor of Political Science at San Francisco State University.

“I do feel a lot of energy, where [politicians are] seeing this as a a pro-environmental agenda that can really lift all votes, so to speak,” McDaniel says.
