Homelessness is Not Normal
Our city is rapidly growing and experiencing a housing and homelessness crisis. Leveraging the expertise of policy makers, community activists, social service providers, and affordable housing designers, this panel explores how we got here, what is being done to address it, what more can be done, and how design can help. Join us for a deeper perspective on why homelessness is so pervasive in our society, and to better understand the necessary changes to improve conditions — with design helping to lead the way.
