Please join the Salt Lake City Public Library, moderator Doug Fabrizio, Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall and a panel of experts as they explore the question: Is homelessness a problem we can solve?  

Homelessness, with its heartaches and complications, has plagued America for decades. Utah’s approach to helping its unsheltered population has ranged from subsidized housing to increasing its amount of homeless resource centers. But with the recent economic recession, a booming housing market and the continued fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, authorities and the unsheltered are combating additional strains.

Event is Wednesday, Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. Register here.
