Tens of thousands of Angelenos, including families with children, are without homes every night. Many more are on the brink of homelessness. In response to this crisis, both the County and City of Los Angeles recently passed funding measures intended to provide new and needed services and resources. We will explore the issue of homelessness, and the response of local institutions, from three different perspectives: a Skid Row resident and activist, a developer of permanent supportive housing, and UCLA’s own BruinShelter. These speakers will share their perspectives and answer questions from the audience. Confirmed speakers: Dora Leong Gallo, A Community of Friends Suzette Shaw, Activist and Skidrow Resident Moderated by Professor Mike Lens Lunch Provided A UCLA joint endeavor from the Lewis Center for Regional Policy Studies, Ziman Center for Real Estate, and the Institute on Inequality and Democracy.
