Unjust Housing: Racism in Homelessness
January 24, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
In Seattle, it’s clear homelessness is an injustice. A history of discriminatory housing practices means a disproportionate number of people of color experience homelessness. We can change that.
In this Emerging Leaders panel, we’ll explore how racism causes housing injustice in King County. You’ll hear from policy experts Linda Taylor, Housing Director of Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle, Diane Sugimura, former Director of the Seattle Department of Planning and Development, and Colleen Echohawk, Executive Director of the Chief Seattle Club. Deborah Horne of KIRO 7 will moderate. Join the discussion to address these disparities for a more equitable Seattle.
Light food and drinks are provided, plus time for Q&A. Free parking is available. Doors open at 6pm, with the program beginning at 6:30pm. This event is open to all young professionals with a pay-what-you-can donation. (Speaker Series like this are always free for Emerging Leaders 365 members).
Thanks to our sponsor, Casey Family Programs, all proceeds support United Way of King County’s work to reduce inequities and move people into homes.
