This general membership meeting will be held via Zoom.
Members will hear about recent LWVTC board decisions, honor three of our members for their outstanding efforts in 2019-2020, and explore ways we might become more involved in addressing homelessness in our community.
Cynthia Stewart will present about the homelessness crisis in Washington State and this region. Cynthia is Issue Chair for Housing/Homelessness for the Washington LWV. Her presentation will include statewide data, underlying causes, trends, implications of the COVID pandemic, and possible remedies including legislation.
Brandon Block, reporter for The Olympian, will talk about his first hand experiences with homeless individuals and communities over the past few months.
Following these presentations, there will be time for Q&A and discussion about ways our League might support the efforts of others working to alleviate homelessness in our community. During this meeting you will have the opportunity to share your thoughts about what you'd like to see our League achieve between now and next spring.
