ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


YIMBY stands for "Yes In My Backyard". It's a movement that supports building more housing in cities and towns so there is a place for everyone to live. YIMBYs believe that having more housing makes a city more inclusive and helps people have access to better jobs and services, like health care and transportation. They also believe that adding more housing can reduce inequality and make cities more affordable and livable. So they support new housing developments, like apartments or condos, even if it means changing the character of their neighborhoods.
