WORLDS OF HOMELESSNESS - DAY 1: Opening Panel / Framing the Issue: Homelessness and its many related themes

“How are the issues of homelessness and housing precarity spoken about and addressed in different communities, cities, countries, or parts of the world? How can we understand and examine the interconnectivity and linkages between homelessness and its many related themes such as rich and poor, participation, inequality, gentrification, racism, and migration? Is housing a human right that demands stronger policies by policymakers? How can the knowledge and needs of communities become important drivers for change?” were some of the questions that shaped the discussion at the Skid Row Museum and Archive on Day 1 of this event series, which ended with a riveting performance by the LA Playmakers.
