Social Housing: Halting the Pipeline into Houselessness

Thursday, March 10, 3:15-4:30 p.m.
Allen Auditorium, UW campus OR ONLINE

You’re invited to a public conversation hosted by Honors students enrolled in the course “Abolishing Poverty: shelter, mutual aid and care” taught by Honors program director and geography professor, Victoria Lawson. Students are collaborating with House our Neighbors and Real Change News to think about housing as a life-sustaining right in King County.

Curious to learn more about how social housing provides an antidote to concentrated poverty, tenant abuse, and houselessness? Or are you just hearing the words “social housing” for the first time? Join us in hearing people with lived expertise, advocates, and system leaders highlight the importance of social housing.

Our panelists will include:
– Carl: Carl is both a Real Change advocacy team member and vendor, as well as a local organizer. You can find him postering for House Our Neighbors! and Democracy Now! around the city. He additionally has lived experience with houselessness.
– Kate: Kate is the executive director of Be:Seattle, an organization aimed at empowering tenants through education and advocacy.
– Linda: Linda is a Senior Lecturer Emeritus in the College of Urban Studies at UW Tacoma with research experience on strategies for improving community wellness.
– Zach: Zach is an Assistant Professor in the Institute of Public Service at Seattle University and an expert with international experience studying social housing
