“Sonja Trauss is the driving force behind the YIMBY movement and I have no doubt she will do more than anyone else to correct the Bay Area’s history of urban short-sightedness. ”
- Issi Romem

“I have known Sonja for nearly twenty years, from when she started as a bike messenger and a window washer. I’ve seen her grow, working as a math teacher and as a community organizer. More recently, Sonja brought her passion, policy insights and compassion to create the SF Bay Area Renters' Federation, and Yimby Action, advocating for more housing because everyone deserves a home. Sonja has my vote because I know she cares about the people of our community.”
- Zac Carr
