Crosscut presents two days of thought-provoking conversations and innovative thinking, tackling the most important issues of our times. Journalists, politicians, authors, and newsmakers from our community and around the nation come together to take a hard look at the people, policy and events that shape our lives. The impressive list of speakers includes leaders from a variety of sectors and backgrounds, including Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor for President Barack Obama; Eric Liu, CEO of Citizen University; Pramila Jayapal, United States Congresswoman; Macklemore; and many more.
Join us for our upcoming Challenge Night, where you’ll hear a brief overview of the scope of homelessness in our community, learn about the main interventions being used to address it, and better understand how racism, transgender discrimination, and implicit bias shape how people become homeless and their experiences with social services/interventions.
You will hear from people who have experienced homelessness about which agency processes work and which do not, with a focus on how racism, discrimination, and bias affected their experience.
Pulling all that together, you will get the chance to discuss what you, as a leader, can do to challenge and change policies and practices so that existing systems become more welcoming, responsive and empowering for the people they serve.

Seattle Police Chief, Carmen Best, endured an interesting and highly political process to get to the position she’s in today. Join us to hear what she’s learned about herself and the community along the way, how she’s building trust and engaging in tough conversations to bridge divided communities, and some of the challenges in policing and law enforcement today. The conversation will be moderated by award-winning author and journalist, Ruchika Tulshyan, LT’16. At the end of the conversation, there will be plenty of time for audience Q&A.
