Learning, Research, and Action on Homelessness: Roots, Impacts, and Solutions for Change
Housing is foundational to human health, safety, security, stability, and wellbeing. Yet, a large and growing number of our neighbors are housing insecure or unhoused. Negative stereotypes about people experiencing homelessness abound. The stigma generated by such views adds insult to the injury that San Diegans experiencing homelessness already bear. Leslie R. Lewis, Ph.D, MPH, Continuing Lecturer and Director of Urban Health and Equity Initiatives in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at UCSD and Director of Education and Community Engagement at Homelessness Hub will address the following: Who are the homeless? What can we learn from academic research and from people with lived experience themselves about the roots and multiple (individual; community; societal) harms of housing insecurity and houselessness? What actions can we take, both individually and collectively, to help create the social and economic conditions in which everyone has safe, decent housing?

You may (but don't have to) RSVP on Meetup.
Sunday Assembly San Diego is an inclusive non-religious community that meets monthly to hear inspirational talks, connect for service projects, sing songs and generally celebrate life. Assemblies are free to attend, and everyone is welcome.
We are located at the Bankers Hill Club, which features an accessible facility, including accessible parking spots and bathrooms.
After the assembly, folks are welcome to check out the Book/Puzzle/Game Swap on the back porch, and/or go have lunch with fellow assemblers at Barrio Star. Both of those are separate events you can RSVP for: Book/Puzzle/Game Swap and Barrio Star lunch.
