Event description

Description

A public forum to educate the community about this countywide problem, which is an emergency, growing continuously and invisible (we only see about 5% of the people who are experiencing homelessness) - and to inspire community action to mitigate the effects of poverty, which is the cause of homelessness.

Panels will discuss many of the issues surrounding homelessness, with opportunities for audience participation. To see the schedule of panels and for more information, go to http://www.tacomapiercelwv.org/Homelessness_Forum.html.

Participants may attend any portion or all of the forum.

Free. Donations for homeless services gratefully accepted. Lunches may be ordered in advance or available in nearby restaurants.

Co-sponsors include KeyBank, Washington State Historic Museum, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), American Association of University Women (AAUW),Restoring the American Dream (RAD) and Molina Health Care.
