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.
What to Expect:
This evening will focus on how to make existing systems better in a very particular way—addressing racism, transgender discrimination, and implicit bias. There are many discussions in other forums about how to totally restructure the system and its interventions. We hope you will participate in those other forums also.
Like all Challenge Days, there will be time for table talks and audience Q&A, and we will send pre-work before the event. This event is open to current class members, alumni, and guests.
