Request #18-17

I'm a journalist with In These Times magazine, looking to find records from January 2016 through December 2017 related to contacts that the City had with the yes-in-my-back-yard/"YIMBY" movement, including groups that supported the "No on Prop S" campaign in 2017, such as Abundant Housing LA; YIMBY Action; campaign groups associated with No on S; and a YIMBY leader - an individual named Sonja Trauss.

Please let me know if you need more specifics.
Thank you,
