Anna Cash, Partnership for the Bay’s Future Challenge Grant Fellow, collaborates with the City of Berkeley and East Bay Community Law Center on a Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act (TOPA), and a community preference policy for affordable housing. Prior to this fellowship, Anna worked as program director of the Urban Displacement Project (UDP) where she was responsible for research management, with an emphasis on ensuring that the research was community-engaged and policy-relevant. At UDP, she worked on policy briefs, provided technical assistance, and led workshops on anti-displacement policy strategies. Anna has a research background in asset-building for low-income communities, having worked previously at Innovations for Poverty Action’s US Household Finance Initiative. She holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology and latin american studies from Wesleyan University, and a master's in city planning from UC Berkeley. When Anna's not working to make cities more equitable, she can be found cooking up a new recipe, doing yoga, dancing, or spending time in nature.
