There are nearly 40,000 homeless students identified in Washington state last school year, a number that has doubled since the 2008-09 school year. Watch live as a panel of experts discusses how our region's homelessness crisis impacts the lives of our youngest residents.
If you weren’t able to snag a ticket to attend Wednesday night’s Seattle Times Livewire event centered on youth homelessness in Seattle, we’ve got you covered.
“Homework without a home: Helping homeless students in Seattle” will feature a panel of advocates and experts on youth homelessness: Katara Jordan, an attorney and advocate with Seattle-based nonprofit Building Changes; Jonathan Houston, who coordinated homeless student services for Tukwila schools; and Katy Miller, the West Coast coordinator for the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness.
Jonathan Martin, the editor of the Times’ new yearlong initiative Project Homeless, will moderate the discussion, which will take place at the central branch of Seattle Public Library.
Starting at 6:30 p.m., you can watch our livestream of the event below.
