We Are All Neighbors in 2022 First-Person Stories of Living on the Street
Saturday, January 22, 2022
10:00 AM to 12:00 noon via Zoom
Whether the fallout from a capitalist and consumer-based economy, an uncaring political system that favors affluence, lack of public healthcare and affordable housing, stagnant wages that lead to poverty, or all of the above and more, a growing number of people face living on the street. Why is this an American phenomenon and how do we reverse it? When provided with appropriate supportive services and programs, and embraced by their community as equals, citizens who were once unhoused are able to recapture successfully their essence and experience lives of joy and fulfillment. Ultimately, they become active community members and valuable contributors. As we begin a hopefully brighter new year, let us strengthen our commitment as planners to making more inclusive decisions about the future and broadening the collective definition of neighbor. Come hear stories of transformation and resilience from those who have survived homelessness.
