WHY: Cities across California are facing an unprecedented homelessness crisis. It is estimated that over 150,000 Californians are experiencing homelessness, including over 60,000 in Los Angeles County with nearly 40,000 of those found in the City of Los Angeles. The global pandemic only exacerbated this humanitarian crisis. Despite the COVID pandemic subsiding due to increased vaccinations, homelessness continues.

The “Community Hearing on Homelessness, Housing and Hunger” is intended to bring new urgency among government and elected officials and the public to these three overlapping crises. Elected officials and decision-makers will hear from those with lived experience and stakeholders who will provide various points of view on addressing these growing humanitarian issues.
