Event description

Description

Criminalization of homelessness is on the rise… and funding for housing and services is threatened as never before. As advocates, we need to build and strengthen in order to meet increasing challenges at the local, state, and federal levels. Building on the work of our 2015 and 2016 forums, this year’s gathering will focus on increasing the reach of the newly-launched Housing Not Handcuffs national campaign, which fights against the criminalization of homelessness—and for adequate housing instead.

The forum will include discussions on a number of important topics, from the intersectional forms of discrimination that result in the criminalization of homelessness to the models of advocacy that are succeeding in cities and counties. The goal and focus of the forum, however, will be strategizing and planning our collective work moving forward.

Breakfast is included both days and lunch will be provided on Tuesday, June 6. There will also be a reception the evening of Tuesday, June 6. For planning purposes, each attendee must register individually.

The National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty places high value on the participation of people who are currently experiencing, or who have formerly experienced, homelessness, people who have low income, people from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, those who identify as LGBTQ, and grassroots activists around the country. If cost is an impediment to attending the forum, we encourage you to apply for a travel scholarship by emailing RightToHousing@nlchp.org.

Details about the forum, including the schedule and list of panels and speakers are available at https://www.nlchp.org/forum_2017.
