Homelessness: 90-Minute Conversation w/ Optional 30-Minute Q & A with Hosts!
August 22, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDTFree
August 22, 2019 @ 7:00 – 9:00 pm ET / 4:00 – 6:00 pm PT (adjust for your time zone)
Homelessness in America is a problem that reminds us daily of our failure to be our best. How do we explain to children the presence of hungry, cold, neglected and often mentally ill men women and children on our streets in the midst of plenty? If we gather neighbors, business owners, health care workers, police, government officials, homeless people and their families in conversation might we build trust and begin to explore opportunities to do better? Conversations are admittedly only a starting point, but isn’t it time to start?
Here is the conversation guide. Some of the questions explored include:
- What has been your personal response to homeless people whom you’ve seen? Who do you think makes up the homeless population?
- What do you think is contributing to homelessness right now?
- What do you expect from your city, county, state or federal government with regard to homelessness?
You will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone).
Please only sign up for a place in this conversation if you are 100% certain that you can join – and thank you – we have many folks waiting to have Living Room Conversations and hope to have 100% attendance. If you need to cancel please return to Eventbrite to cancel your ticket.
A link to join the conversation and additional details will be sent to you by no later than the day before the conversation.
