Limited Capacity seats available

Outdated assumptions attribute houselessness to poor choices, addiction, and mental illness, yet empirical data suggests that chronic housing insecurity, gentrification and sky-high rents underline the crisis. Food insecurity and houselessness too underline healthcare inequity and inaccessibility. Is access to housing, food, education, safety, and quality medical care a human right? Join us for a discussion with three generations of organizers, Dolores Huerta, Emiliana Guereca, Edna Chavez with Rani Marx, Pete White, and the LA CAN Freedom Singers for this conversation on Freedom from Want that will focus on the intersection of health care, slow medicine, houselessness, immigration policy, structural obstacles, and recent ballot measures
