Housing instability issues continue to impact people in our region, 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 leaders, 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.

What is the extent of the housing crisis in our region? Join Civic Boot Camp on Friday, March 19, from 1:00 to 2:30pm PST as we explore the challenges in providing affordable housing, especially during the pandemic, and address key questions such as:

  • What are the fundamental causes for housing instability?
  • Who is unable to access affordable housing and why?
  • What are the equity issues?
  • What are the success stories that provide hope for short and long-term solutions?
  • What can people do to help?
