Our local Councilmember Mike O’Brien will host a community forum this evening (Wednesday, July 27) from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. to engage, educate, and activate residents of Northwest Seattle relating to neighborhood public safety and public health issues.
The forum will highlight different approaches to address Seattle’s homelessness crisis and give community members a chance to share their thoughts.
Speakers from the Seattle/King County Coalition on Homelessness, Public Defenders Association, and Seattle Police Department will address public attendees.
Members of the public will then break into facilitated small group discussions to engage with one another in regard to earlier remarks.
Groups will have the opportunity to prepare written summaries of their discussions, and Councilmember O’Brien will provide closing remarks.
The forum will be held at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church (5710 22nd Ave NW).
