About this event

The Sacramento Homeless Organizing Committee, and other allied organizations, are sponsoring a “Community Summit on Homelessness” to bring together unhoused people, activists, and advocates for strategic planning.

We will have workshops with local leaders and organizations to build our unity, capacity, and vision with the unhoused community.

• What are the real causes of homelessness?

• Who are our allies?

• Who is working against unhoused people and promoting false “solutions”?

• Who is driving and funding November’s ballot initiative to launch a massive program of displacement and detention of unhoused people? (The Emergency Shelter and Enforcement Plan of 2022). How do we defeat it?

• What do we need to know about current government programs and funding?

• What are we fighting for?

• How can each and every one of us get involved in this struggle for housing, services, homelessness prevention and humane survival strategies with and on behalf of our houseless neighbors?

We will listen to what is needed and what is important from the unhoused event participants. This is integral to the organizing we want to do.

Through the Community Summit, we will work to increase our understanding, learn from each other, build our movement, and develop together our strategy and action plan.
