With local elections upon us, it seems like people are talking about homelessness more than usual in Seattle. Whoever is elected this November could affect the entire region’s approach to homelessness; that’s why a few weeks after election night, we want to have you over for coffee to talk about the state of homelessness in the Puget Sound region, hear your questions, and get your feedback on what we’ve written in our Project Homeless stories over the last year.
We invite you to join us on Seattle’s South End, on the morning of Nov. 20 at the Hillman City Collaboratory, at 5623 Rainier Ave South, for coffee. Feel free to bring a friend or three, but please RSVP for all of you. Coffee and refreshments will be provided by Starbucks.
We’d love to hear what you have to say. Here’s the link to RSVP.
Here’s the schedule:
7:45 — Doors open; coffee and conversation time.
8:15 — Q&A with the Project Homeless team:
