Addressing Homelessness 

April 9, 2018

Tuesday, Seattle Mayor Durkan spoke to more than 30 regional clergy at Plymouth about homelessness and policing.

Special thanks to Michael Ramos, Church Council of Greater Seattle, for coordinating the event.

Addressing homelessness through public, private and religious land use

How can we use public and private space to mitigate the homelessness crisis? The Finding Space forum, Saturday, April 14, 2018, will discuss ideas, solutions and challenges around using public and private property to address homelessness.

Explore social, legal and policy issues related to many private and city-based approaches to tackling homelessness, such as safe parking lots for vehicle residents, authorized encampments, faith-based shelters and the construction of accessory dwelling units in residential backyards.

The Finding Space forum aims to empower participants to pursue and support progressive uses of space to address the needs of people experiencing homelessness.

Hosted by: Seattle University School of Law, SU Homeless Rights Advocacy Project and Seattle Journal for Social Justice. More information here
