We are excited to co-host the Housing Voter Forum with Seattle University’s Project on Family Homelessness and Tech 4 Housing.
How to choose a City Council candidate who supports real solutions to homelessness.
The Seattle City Council race is very crowded, with lots of different ideas of what our city needs, especially when it comes to housing and homelessness. How does a voter who truly wants effective, compassionate solutions to homelessness figure out who to vote for, based on facts and data? We have a panel of experts on solutions such as affordable housing and Housing First; prevention and early intervention programs; mental health and drug addiction treatment; and intersections with the criminal justice system. They will talk about:
• What programs are working and address the root causes of the problem; and what things don’t work or only put a “band-aid” on the problem;
• What issues and approaches have been getting the most attention during this campaign season;
• What a supportive City Council can do to further implement the solutions that work and how the community can push to make it happen.
