More than six years since Seattle declared a state of emergency for its growing homelessness crisis, the issue remains at the top of voters’ minds this November.
To prepare to cast a ballot, join The Seattle Times and We Are In for two nights of virtual debates on homelessness with candidates running for some of the most competitive races in Seattle and King County.
The 2021 Homelessness Debates — hosted by The Seattle Times and We Are In, a local collective working to solve homelessness — will feature Seattle mayoral candidates Bruce Harrell and M. Lorena González in a one-hour debate starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 29. Click here to register now.
