Hello Fellow Oaklanders,
All of us who see and feel the human suffering of homelessness on our streets know that it is unacceptable, and particularly in a region as wealthy as ours. We need to work together to address this crisis and ultimately end it.
On Thursday at 6 p.m., please join us in a discussion on the City’s response to homelessness, get your questions answered, and learn about a new citywide policy proposal to address encampments, and improve the health and safety for all residents. You’ll hear from:
Loren Taylor, Councilmember District 6, author of the proposal who will discuss the community work and events that led to the need for a citywide encampment policy
Daryel Dunston, Homeless Administrator City of Oakland, to explain the details of the proposal, the challenges it aims to address, and the goals it aims to achieve
As always, we will answer your pre-submitted questions (click here to submit) and answer your live questions too.
To dial in by phone: (669) 900-6833, 413825986#
We hope to see you on Thursday at 6 p.m.
