6.01 How to Talk About Housing First

8:15 AM–9:30 AM Jul 27, 2022 (US - Eastern)

International Ballroom West


We know that the solution to homelessness is housing, but an anti-Housing-First narrative is gaining ground. We need to proactively shape the conversation about how to end homelessness, so that we can collaborate with potential partners on life-saving solutions. In this session, we’ll be exploring the power of narratives about Housing First and workshopping ways to talk effectively about it. This session is for anyone who wants to be a positive influence, whether you’re in a position to lead in your CoC, talk to the media, call your lawmaker, attend town meetings, or just talk with your neighbors.
