Homelessness is a massive crisis in LA. People are suffering in every corner of our city and the work seems endless. Given the dramatic increase in people experiencing homelessness in the last few years, many citizens are asking "what can I do to help?" The answer to that question is both straight forward and complex. In this talk, we'll unpack what's so hard about solving homelessness and on the hopeful side, what you actually can do to help.
Talk is being given by Lex Roman of The Black Tux.
