While homelessness is often perceived as the result of a personal or moral failure, a growing body of research has shown that homelessness is the result of entrenched, structural inequities plaguing our society. In this session, we’ll convene a panel of experts to dig into the systemic root causes of homelessness, debunk common myths and stereotypes and discuss the type of long-term change that will truly be needed to end homelessness in our community.


Panelists include:

Jeff Olivet, Executive Director of US Interagency Council on Homelessness 

Tomiquia Moss, Founder & Chief Executive of All Home

Dontae Lartigue, Founder and CEO of Razing the Bar & Chair of the Santa Clara County Lived Experience Advisory Board

Dr. Margot Kushel, UCSF Benioff Homelessnesss Initiative


Moderated by Jennifer Loving, Chief Executive Officer, Destination: Home
