Online Event: Sense in the City Series: Homelessness and Humanity – Feb 23

Posted by Center City Residents Association on February 15, 2022

Please join us for our next discussion in our Sense in the City series, which will be about Homelessness, on February 23 from 12:00 noon until 1:30 PM.

The term “homeless” is often used in contexts that blame and demonize people who are “unhoused,” a term many advocates for those living on our streets and in our parks prefer.  How do we sort out our complex personal reactions, from compassion and concern to fear and frustration? How can we humanize this issue? After a brief overview of some municipal and charitable services available to unhoused people, Hugh Taft-Morales explores the personal ethical quandaries that confront us every day.

Consider watching the 40-minute Netflix documentary Lead Me Home prior to attending.
