Forum: Many Faces: Understanding the Reality of Homelessness. This forum will engage Puyallup-area residents with the issue of Homelessness in ways that are interactive and thought-provoking. It is an opportunity to dialogue with friends and neighbors about a topic that has been divisive but is solvable when we share concerns and ideas. It is designed to "bust the myths" prevalent the Puyallup community and counteract the discrimination we have witnessed against people who need our support and empathy.

After a Keynote presentation, participants will be able to attend one of several topical small-group workshops facilitated by local experts. Following the workshops, there will be a panel discussion where facilitators will share take-aways from the workshops and discuss next steps.

Community groups and service providers have been invited to bring "Solution Booths" where the public can find out what is already being done to improve poverty, housing access and mental health services in Puyallup and the broader Pierce County area.

Free but pre-registration is required at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/many-faces-understanding-the-reality-of-homelessness-tickets-85592167477.
