Oregon Humanities Conversation Project: Homeless in the Land of Plenty
Saturday, March 25, 2017 @ 3:00 pm
Oregon City Public Library

Home is one of the most intimate places we know. It’s a place that provides for and shapes our expression of security, identity, and even play. But an estimated 100 million people around the world lack shelter altogether, and as many as one billion lack adequate permanent housing. Join us for a conversation about how homelessness affects all people within a community and what it means for there to be masses of people not adequately housed. The conversation will be led by Ryan Stroud, founder and director of Communitalks, an applied storytelling project that leverages personal narrative to empower individual and social change.

Through the conversation project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state’s future. Oregon Humanities is an independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities and a partner of the Oregon Cultural Trust.
