Exploring Together: A Focus on Homelessness6:00 p.m.7:00 p.m.Digital Meeting

Talking about homelessness is often uncomfortable, sometimes confusing, and almost always difficult. Salem Public Library invites you to get uncomfortable with us as we provide an opportunity for community members to do the important work of exploring homelessness in America. In this series of community conversations, staff will act as facilitators and work to establish a respectful and supportive space for everyone to contribute their thoughts, share questions, and explore the ideas from the readings and videos. Each of the three discussions will have its own focus:

Session 1: Misconceptions of Homelessness (October 27) Session 2: History of Poverty (November 17) Session 3: Social Resources and Help (December 15)

We ask that you prepare for these discussions by reading or watching at least one entry from the suggested resources list. The resource list for the upcoming meeting can be found at the top of the registration form.

Sign up to get Exploring Together Zoom login information by email on the morning of the discussion.
