The Supportive Housing Network of New York, Trinity Church Wall Street, Enterprise Community Partners and the National Association of Social Workers – New York City Chapter are hosting a mayoral forum – A NEW New York: A Mayoral Town Hall on Supportive Housing – on April 8th from 6-8 p.m.
As the homelessness crisis continues amidst the global pandemic, key solutions to homelessness and economic recovery must be a key element of every mayoral candidate’s platform. Too often, supportive housing is overlooked or misunderstood, despite the fact that it among the most powerful tools available to addressing chronic homelessness.
At this event, candidates will be asked to discuss their plans to end homelessness and ensure the development and continued operation of supportive and affordable housing in the five boroughs. Supportive housing staff and tenants, who understand the system and its many challenges better than anyone, as they live it each and every day, will ask questions on topics including wage equity, crisis response, NIMBYism and more.
We hope you can join us for this important inaugural event, which is taking place at a critical moment in our city’s history.
The forum will be moderated by Janaki Chadha, Reporter, POLITICO New York and Tierra Labrada, Senior Policy Analyst, The Supportive Housing Network of New York.
Confirmed Candidates: Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, Shaun Donovan, Kathryn Garcia, Dianne Morales, New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer, Joycelyn Taylor, and Andrew Yang.
