Event description
How to choose a City Council candidate who supports real solutions to homelessness.

About this Event

Our event before the primary was a huge success, so we decided to have another panel discussion in time for the general election in November. There are a lot of different ideas of what Seattle should do in response to homelessness. How does a voter who truly wants effective, compassionate solutions to homelessness figure out who to vote for, based on facts and data? We have a panel of experts on solutions such as affordable housing and Housing First; prevention and early intervention programs; mental health and drug addiction treatment; and intersections with the criminal justice system. They will talk about:

• What programs are working and address the root causes of the problem; and what things don’t work or only put a “band-aid” on the problem;

• What issues and approaches have been getting the most attention during this campaign season;

• What a supportive City Council can do to further implement the solutions that work and how the community can push to make it happen.
