Yes, the 2018 homelessness count showed a three percent drop in homelessness across L.A. County. It also revealed that more people than ever are experiencing homelessness for the first time. City officials, advocates and community members are working to find solutions — examples include tax hikes for affordable housing to increasing shelters. But the situation is complex, and the path forward is unclear.
How should Los Angeles address its growing homelessness issue? What questions do you have for city officials? What discussion do you think we should be having around homelessness?
KPCC In Person wants to turn the mic over to you. When it comes to homelessness in our region, let us know what matters most to you and what questions you have. We will be collecting your questions through August 5, when we'll then switch to a vote. You and fellow community members get to pick the focus of the conversation.
Then we invite you to join KPCC In Person and host Libby Denkmann on September 6 at the Japanese American National Museum in downtown Los Angeles to discuss this important matter.
