Santa Cruz Together is a diverse coalition of neighbors, leaders, and organizations who have come together to advocate for forward-thinking policies and people that protect our quality of life and Santa Cruz's vibrant character.

We successfully defeated Measure M because it would not Santa Cruz more affordable for the majority but instead lead to fewer rental properties and more owner occupied property.   Measure M was a bad public policy that makes the affordable housing shortage worse.
