When we realize how fragile we are, we are more likely to support each other.

This is a repeat and reminder, in case you missed or forgot the first announcement:

You are warmly invited to a scheduled Zoom meeting, a virtual community conversation about the effects of the housing crisis:

Topic: Who Is My Neighbor?
Time: Wednesday, July 15, 3 PM to 5 PM

The video, Who Is My Neighbor? is packed with questions and will be paused for reflection on the same questions being asked of the people with lived experience whose interviews appear in the video.

The video does not provide solutions, but demonstrates the process of asking powerful questions to restore connection and trust, questions that allow solutions to arise organically from the people affected by the housing crisis, which is all of us.

Please, Please download the Who Is My Neighbor questions PDF from this page before joining this meeting.

PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY and pause in the waiting room until everyone is admitted at 3:00. The meeting will be locked, and no more participants admitted, at 3:10, so that the explanation of the agenda can be done once for everybody.

  • Homeless Challenge Manual You have probably never put yourself in the shoes of a homeless person. You might have said, "I can't imagine living like that" once or twice, but you have never really experienced what it is like. And we hope you never do. Our answer to breaking down at least some of the barriers between housed and homeless Americans is the Homeless Challenge where the streets become your teacher.

  • IONS is offering the video course C3: Consciousness, Communication and Change for free through the month of July! Science and wisdom to inspire and improve the effectiveness of change-makers. Share with friends! As an alumnus of this course and a lifelong communicator, I very gratefully value the information about the role of unconscious bias as an extra layer to what I already knew about nonviolent, empathic communication. I continue to apply what I learned in this course and never hesitate to mention it as a valuable tool not only for advocates but also those in conflict situations. EVERYBODY could benefit from this small investment of time and energy!
