October 19, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium
No Place Like Home is a campus-community event to unveil the findings of our county-wide research on the affordable housing crisis in Santa Cruz. We will share the results of over 1400 surveys and interviews with local residents an dhow they are experiencing the housing crisis. The event also features a visual and literary art exhibit on the meaning on “home”. Finally, the event kicks off Affordable Housing week, with a wide-range of county organizations and community groups participating in an open discussion of responses to the crisis and sharing information about strategies, campaigns, and upcoming events seeking a way forward.
