Immigration: Xenophobia vs. Acceptance

Addressing why homelessness is so persistent (and is a growing phenomenon in our city) Poet Emma Lazarus wrote a poem titled "The New Colossus" in 1883 to help raise funds for the Statue of Liberty, which was completed three years later. The poem, often cited as representative of the U.S. approach to immigration reads in part:

Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...

Her poem represented an unrealized ideal--and, sadly, still does. Bigotry against immigrants continues to be rife in our country. Immigration quotas based on racial hierarchies formally passed in 1924 and would remain in effect until 1965.

Homelessness: Addressing it in our Community.

Experts and community leaders will guide our discussion about how the homeless population in our city continues to grow, what resources are available to individuals and families living on the streets and how we can get involved and drive change. I have been inspired by people who have experienced and fought homelessness in our Bay Area community and am eager to have them share their insight.

Come together with friends, neighbors and new acquaintances to learn more about the vastly different reasons people end up without a stable roof over their heads.
