Will we house everyone? That's the question we'll be exploring on April 15 at the next listening session for our People's Agenda project.
Join us at noon for another discussion to uncover what is important to you as we head towards the municipal election on Oct. 18. Please register here to attend.
The topic reflects the synthesis of a number of responses to our People's Agenda question related to housing. We've heard from many people who want know what candidates will do to decrease or eradicate homelessness. Many see a need for more affordable housing and they see a direct connection between that and social justice. A few want a crackdown on homeless encampments.
Host Chris Chang-Yen Phillips will discuss the topic with a guest to put the question into context. Then we'll head into discussion groups where you can share your thoughts on the matter.
If you can't make it, we will recap it on Friday, as we did last week on the question "Will we spend less on police?".
We'll be holding listening sessions every Thursday throughout April, which you can sign up for now:
- April 15: Will we house everyone?
- April 22: Will we act on climate change?
- April 29: Will we build our city intelligently?
