Event Details

About the Event:

How can we use public, private, and religious land to mitigate the homelessness crisis? The Finding Space forum will discuss ideas, solutions, and challenges around land use issues and homelessness. We will explore social, legal and policy issues related to many private and city-based approaches to tackling homelessness, such as safe parking lots, authorized encampments, shelters, and tiny villages. The Finding Space forum aims not only to stimulate thought, discussion, and scholarship, but ideally, to empower participants to more confidently pursue and support more progressive uses of public, private, and faith-based property to address the needs of peopel experiencing homelessness.
