Over the past decade, there has been an explosion in homelessness, addiction, crime, and disorder in America’s major cities. By latest count, there are more than 500,000 people sleeping on the streets in the United States, with the highest concentration in West Coast cities including Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
The problem has reached critical mass and voters are starting to take notice. A recent Crosscut/Elway poll found that homelessness was the number one issue for voters across Washington State. The progressive political class insists that it’s a “housing problem,” however the real causes are much more intricate.
Join us on Tuesday, March 31 for a reception and lecture with Christopher Rufo, Discovery Institute’s new Director for the Center on Wealth and Poverty, and learn about the root causes of the homeless crisis such as addiction, mental illness, and family disintegration. Instead of continuing to employ the same self-defeating progressive policies, Chris will outline new, bold strategies to combat the issue.
A reception with light refreshments will begin at 4:30 before the program begins at 5:15.
