Homelessness is perhaps the No. 1 issue facing our city. “Compassion Seattle,” a proposal that offered a different approach to homelessness, did not make the November ballot. Many people are asking, “What now? Is there a better idea? How can we make progress on this complicated problem? What are our best chances for a solution– or, solutions?”
Please join Seattle University’s Institute of Public Service for a vigorous and thoughtful discussion on “Homelessness: After All the Time and Effort, Why Is It Getting Worse?”
Marc Dones (they/them), CEO of the King County Regional Homelessness Authority
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan (she/her)
Tiffani McCoy (she/her), advocacy director for Real Change news
Jon Scholes (he/him), president and CEO of the Downtown Seattle Association
The event is moderated by Larry Hubbell, professor at Seattle University, and Joni Balter, contributing columnist and lecturer at SU. A few selected students will also join.
The event is free to Seattle University students, faculty and alumni.
Presented by Seattle University Institute of Public Service.
