On Wednesday, November 18th, 7:00pm, leaders in the faith, business, neighborhood association, and unhoused communities will join together for a town hall on homelessness at First United Methodist Church (1376 Olive St).
“Our strength lies in our diversity, partnerships and resources;” says organizer Emily Farthing, “This town hall is designed to unite those into action.”
Generating input, sharing knowledge, stimulating innovative thinking, and exploring action possibilities is a focus of the meeting. The immediate need of housing will be addressed and the potential effects of Mayors Piercy’s ordinance lifting restrictions on the current camping ban.
Heather Sielicki, Southeast Neighbors Chair, and Pastor Brent Was from the neighborhood Egan Warming Center Site will assist with group facilitation and invite Southeast Neighbors association members to join them in discussion.
Event sponsors include Eugene Weekly, First Congregational Church Housing Initiative, First United Methodist Church, DEED (Downtown Eugene Economic Development), CALC, Blue Moon…
