Community forum on homeless in the Haight 8/24

Posted on 22 August 2009

Community Forum on homeless in the Haight with guests Violet Blue and Mark Bittner at Booksmith, 1644 Haight St., Monday, August 24 at 7:30 p.m.

As residents & merchants who live with the chaos on Haight Street, our patience for the current state occasionally runs out. In our frustration, we sometimes forget that the homeless living on these streets are often struggling with challenges of their own.

According to Wikipedia, as many as 3.5 million people experience homelessness in a given year in the US alone. In a January 2007 survey conducted by the city of San Francisco, volunteers counted over 6,300 homeless within the city limits.

Who are these homeless? Why are they living on the streets? What kind of life and challenges do they face? These are some of the questions we'll grapple with at this event. Join two well-respected writers, Mark Bittner and Violet Blue, to hear their personal stories of homelessness.

This event is part of the Booksmith's series of community forums on homelessness. By understanding the homeless perspective, we hope to move a few steps closer to developing solutions to homelessness in our own backyard.

Comment: We should have an Open Forum on homeless issues here in
Sacramento to explore what seems on the surface like a simple matter
of simply giving people a home, but unless the root causes of homeless
people are addressed, root causes that can have a wide variety of degrees
and related factors, we will continue to have more and more homeless
people stranded outside in the streets.

The City of Sacramento does not even now allow Safe Ground for homeless
people to spend the night and 'be' in relative safety.
