The purpose of the meeting is to bring partners, supporters and friends from Gilroy, Morgan Hill and San Martin together so that we can all work more effectively together when advocacy is needed.
We will start with a presentation of tools and resources available to support advocacy objectives, then take some time to brainstorm and discuss specific advocacy priorities related to housing and homelessness, and finish up with a discussion of how we can work together to make progress moving forward.
- Tools and resources (What help do we have?)
- Advocacy priorities (What do we want?)
- Next steps (What do we do next?)
Tools and resources in South County currently include the Community Plan to End Homelessness, the housing element process, and increasing local interest in advancing new programs and policy to address homelessness and affordable housing needs.
