‘A better life.’ How a Facebook Community is Helping Thousands Flee California for Other States | app

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Hundreds of thousands of residents have fled California for other states during the pandemic and it appears most of them have found a virtual home on one of the Terry Gilliam’s Facebook Page. His groups – Leaving California and Life After California – have nearly 240,000 members combined, a number that has doubled in the past six months alone.

The groups have created an online community for Californian refugees. They ask for advice on where and how to move: Has anyone used a storage carrier they like? What’s the weather like in Tampa? How much does it cost to buy a house in Boise?
