Figuring out how to center racial equity in the work to end homelessness can be done effectively with strategic planning, the right information, and investment. Systems leaders have a high level of influence over cultural norms, policy, and practice, making them well positioned to shape homelessness system design to promote racial equity.
The National Alliance to End Homelessness is sponsoring a webinar on Thursday, June 16, 2022, from 1:00 – 2:15 PM EDT to offer some practical road maps for making profound and sustainable change at the systems level. Participants will hear from leaders that are taking steps such as revamping coordinated entry to factor equity into new housing subsidies to statewide plans.
The following speakers will present during this session:
- Va Lecia Adams Kellum, Ph.D., President and CEO of St. Joseph Center
- Nichele J. Carver, Associate Director, Homeless and Special Needs Housing of the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD)
