Can Los Angeles Really End Homelessness?
A micro-to-macro look at one of LA’s most challenging problems
Vision of the Series: This series is meant to focus on interdisciplinary challenges and solutions to homelessness in Los Angeles. The audience will be primarily composed of students and faculty from the school’s three departments- Social Welfare, Public Policy, and Urban Planning. We hope that this series can educate and challenge the thinking of attendees on the complexity of homelessness in our city.
Second Event in the Series: Skid Row Tour
In addition to the two panel events leading up to the United Way HomeWalk, students will have the opportunity to visit the St. Vincent’s Cardinal Manning Center and receive a tour of the facility and a walking tour of Skid Row.
Where: St. Vincent’s Cardinal Manning Center
Format: The day will consist of an overview of the center and the history of Skid Row as well as a walking tour of the area.
Please contact Martha Washo if you would like to participate in the Tour of Skid Row. To reserve your spot on the tour (including lunch and transportation to and from Skid Row), please give a payment of $10 to Dan Oyenoki in Public Policy. Your $10 will be returned to you after you finish the tour.
