City Meetings Relevant to Homelessness

City Meetings Relevant to Homelessness 

Listen and Speak!

The following is a list of public city meetings relevant to homelessness. The community needs to know what the city is doing and be a part of directing decisions made! Most importantly, the city needs to hear from everyone directly experiencing homelessness and from those on the front lines of homelessness everyday. Join these meetings to learn what the city is (and is not) doing, and to speak when possible about the realities of life without housing and our immediate need for rights, dignity, and housing!
