Housing instability issues continue to impact people in our region, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic and related economic downturn. Join Seattle CityClub at Housing Instability: Shifting from Crises to Solutions --the first Civic Boot Camp of the year--featuring a three-part, virtual series that will dive into questions on affordable housing, homelessness, and legislative priorities and discuss success stories with local experts, elected officials, and community leaders.

Listen, ask questions, and get the knowledge and inspiration needed to engage in your community and work toward solutions. As part of this curriculum, all participants will also receive links to informational interviews with community leaders, key articles, videos, websites, and volunteer resources.

The Homelessness Crisis

From Ravenna to the University district to downtown Seattle and beyond, what is the extent of the homelessness crisis and how can it be addressed?

Join us at Civic Boot Camp on Friday, March 26, from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m., for the second of this three-part series to learn about the current state of the homelessness crisis in our neighborhoods and address key questions such as:

  • How can we compassionately support people experiencing homelessness and address residents' and business' concerns?
  • What alternatives can we provide to people living in cars and RVs on streets and tents in parks?
  • What are the equity issues?
  • What are some success stories that can give us hope for short and long-term solutions?
  • What can people do to help?

If you'd like to purchase a ticket for each event in this series, please call Seattle CityClub at (206) 682-7395, or email us at cityclub@seattlecityclub.org with "Civic Boot Camp Housing Instability" in the subject line.
