Exploring the Systemic Causes of Homelessness

While homelessness is often perceived as the result of a personal or moral failure, a growing body of research has shown that homelessness is the result of entrenched, structural inequities plaguing our society. In this forum, we’ll convene a panel of experts to dig into the systemic root causes of homelessness, debunk common myths and stereotypes and discuss the type of long-term change that will truly be needed to end homelessness in our community.

This panel discussion is co-hosted by Destination: Home and San José Spotlight.

Panelists include:

  • Jeff Olivet, Executive Director of US Interagency Council on Homelessness
  • Tomiquia Moss, Founder & Chief Executive of All Home
  • Dontae Lartigue, Founder and CEO of Razing the Bar & Chair of the Santa Clara County Lived Experience Advisory Board
  • Dr. Margot Kushel, UCSF Benioff Homelessness Initiative

Moderated by Jennifer Loving, CEO of Destination: Home
