Homelessness crisis to be addressed by panel

Bright and early on Wednesday morning, Oct. 4, at 8 a.m. — at the Ebell of Los Angeles — our readers are invited to meet with Windsor Square neighbors Mayor Karen Bass and Sarah Dusseault and Windsor Village neighbor Jill Bauman. Joining those three women for what is being described as a “fireside chat” are two other prominent leaders addressing the homelessness crisis — Dr. Va Lecia Adams Kellum, chief executive officer of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), and data expert Janey Rountree, executive director of the California Policy Lab at UCLA.

Dusseault serves as co-chair of the Blue Ribbon Commission on Homelessness, and Bauman is emeritus CEO of Imagine LA, a nonprofit group dedicated to mobilizing the community to end the generational cycle of homelessness and poverty. She also is co-founder of Social Benefit, the producer of this event.

Mayor Bass will lead the discussion of the challenges ahead in tackling homelessness. The conversation will be anchored in facts shared by UCLA’s Rountree. The group of five women will explore with attendees the major components driving the homelessness emergency in Los Angeles today and how city and county governments, nonprofit organizations and the private sector are collaborating on a strategic approach and a viable path forward.

Tickets must be obtained in advance. They are $15 for Ebell members and $20 for non-members. Coffee and light refreshments will be available for the gathering that has an 8 a.m. arrival time for a program start time of 8:30 a.m.  More information and tickets are at
