Mayor hosts panel on homelessness

Tuesday, August 27, 2019 by Tai Moses

Mayor Steve Adler is hosting a panel discussion about a subject that’s been on his mind a lot lately: ending homelessness in Austin. Though City Council has made it a top priority, the path so far has been a rocky one. With stakeholders and leaders on all sides of the issue, this promises to be a lively conversation. Beside the mayor, the panel is composed of Matthew Mollica, the new executive director of the Ending Community Homelessness Coalition; Susan McDowell, the CEO of LifeWorks; Bill Brice, a vice president of the Downtown Austin Alliance; Chris Harris, a community advocate with Homes Not Handcuffs; and Sherri Greenberg, a professor from the LBJ School of Public Affairs. The panel will begin with a welcome from LBJ’s Dean Angela Evans and will be moderated by Steven Pedigo, the director of the LBJ Urban Lab. All are welcome but an RSVP is requested. Thursday, Aug. 29, 6-8 p.m., Lady Bird Johnson Auditorium, 2313 Red River St.
