Notes on the Intersection of Racism and Homelessness in America: A Conversation with Jeff Olivet

Sep 28, 2016

On this edition of StudioTulsa, we speak with Jeff Olivet, who is the President and CEO of the Boston-based Center for Social Innovation. Olivet is also a nationally recognized expert on homelessness, poverty, affordable housing, behavioral health, public health, and HIV -- and he'll be speaking about "Racism and Homelessness in America" at this year's National Zarrow Mental Health Symposium, which happens here in Tulsa from today (the 28th) through Friday (the 30th) at the Cox Business Center downtown. The theme for this year's symposium is "Ready For Zero: Innovative and Sustainable Solutions for Housing and Recovery," and you can learn more about this three-day gathering -- which will "bring together more than 1,000 stakeholders from across the country to engage, share, and learn about strategies and best practices to end homelessness" -- at this link.
