Community Conversation: Racial Equity and Homelessness
The Center for Social Innovation has invited Pierce County, the City of Tacoma, and community stakeholders to participate as part of a ten-city cohort in a national research and training project to better understand the nexus between race and homelessness, and to develop tools and approaches that will result in more equitable outcomes for all people experiencing homelessness.
The project, called SPARC: Supporting Partnerships for Anti-Racist Communities, combines qualitative and quantitative research, training, and community dialog to promote awareness, education, and action. Join us for an evening of learning and conversation to kick-off Tacoma/Pierce County’s journey with SPARC.
