Forum October 18th: Resist Homeless Hate Laws

On Saturday, October 18th, from 6-9 pm, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Fort Lauderdale will be hosting a community forum on the topic of solutions to homelessness in the city.

Virtually every voice opposed to Fort Lauderdale's "Homeless Hate Laws" have been shut out and ignored by the public officials creating these terrible policies, from homeless people to local mainstream journalists. We invite everyone to participate in a democratic forum where all voices can contribute to real solutions to homelessness and bad city policy.

Fort Lauderdale Food Not Bombs will be providing free food (which anyone is free to enjoy and also contribute to). and will also be facilitating a discussion between anyone willing to participate on the subject of solutions to homeless problems in Fort Lauderdale. Groups and organizations are encouraged to have representatives speak on their behalf. Music and a brief introduction to homeless issues are also part of the schedule.

Organizations and individuals are highly encouraged to get in touch with us about issuing their solutions as proposals at this forum or showing interest in participating in this process. You can also join our Facebook event page. We will have more information about participating organizations, and what specific solutions are being proposed, soon!
