The National Health Care for the Homeless Council, the Street Medicine Institute, and the National Homelessness Law Center invite you to a free, virtual symposium to explore the future of public safety and the intersecting issues of unsheltered homelessness, criminalization, crisis response, street outreach, and health care.

When: Wednesday, April 6: 11:00 am – 2:30 pm Central Time

Why:
Communities across the country are reimagining public safety to reduce unnecessary utilization of law enforcement, improve mental health crisis response, and integrate people in crisis into a system of compassionate care. An overlapping dialog, jurisdictions are grappling with the rise of unsheltered homelessness and escalated public incidents that can ensue, threatening both unhoused and housed neighbors. Most desire a trauma-informed response to unhoused people experiencing crises, but models for such programs vary, and little guidance exists. This symposium will gather stakeholders and uplift promising options that benefit all involved.
