Community Dialogue Sessions begin today

Today is the first day of the Community Dialogue Sessions: housing the homeless, that Headlines is hosting.

These sessions will cover the "nuts and bolts" of housing in Metro Vancouver, and are made up of moderated panel discussions.

Today's topic is
"Location, location, location: is it viable to create shelters and/or housing in the communities in which homeless people are residing? If so, how? If not, why?"

Panelists today are
Shirley Chan, Executive Director, Building Opportunites with Business
Dr. Kerry Jang, Councillor, City of Vancouver and Professor, Department of Psychiatry, UBC
Anny Kloppenborg, Former City Planner, City of Vancouver

Come be part of the discussion! Panelists will speak for about 10 to 15 minutes each and then the floor will be open to discussion with the audience.

The session begins at 1:30pm and are FREE!
