Charlotte Race and Social Equity 2021 Fall Forum
Houseless Close to Home: Stories from our own Backyard
Wednesday, November 17 from 12:00 - 1:30 pm
The Rase and Social Equity Academy in the School of Social Work in collaboration with Atkins Library present the Charlotte Race and Social Equity 2021 Fall Forum. This year our theme is Houseless Close to Home: Stories from our Own Backyard. Join us on Wednesday, November 17 from 12:00 - 1:30 pm for a free virtual forum to address racial and social equity issues as it relates to being unhoused. Attendees will hear a keynote from Mr. Tony Peek, a social work alum who experienced being houseless as a student. A virtual panel discussion will feature several alumni and local leaders who will share innovative strategies to eliminate the number of people being unhoused. Attendees will be equipped with information and knowledge about how to advocate and support this population. The School of Social Work will offer 1.5 free contact hours for attendance at this event.
