Unjust Housing: Racism in Homelessness Panel
January 24, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
In Seattle, it’s clear homelessness is an injustice. A history of discriminatory housing practices means a disproportionate number of people of color experience homelessness. We can change that.
On January 24, this event explore how racism causes housing injustice in King County. You’ll hear from policy experts Linda Taylor, Housing Director of Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle, Diane Sugimura, former Director of the Seattle Department of Planning and Development, and Colleen Echohawk, Executive Director of the Chief Seattle Club. Join the discussion to address these disparities for a more equitable Seattle.
This event is open to all young professionals through United Way of King County’s Emerging Leaders program. Tickets are a pay-what-you-can donation. Thanks to our event sponsor, Casey Family Programs, all proceeds support United Way of King County’s work to reduce inequities and move people into homes.
