SiVIC Interreligious Leaders Forum: Housing

Interreligious Leaders Forum

Join SiVIC and On the Table Silicon Valley for a Conversation on our housing challenges on Sunday, November 5th at 2:30pm at the Westminster Presbyterian Church, 1100 Shasta Avenue in San Jose.

Housing issues touch every family in our faith community. This November, all of Silicon Valley will be in conversations sharing our concerns, experiences and solutions to the area’s housing challenges. Do you wonder: will my children be able to live here? Can the valley continue to grow? What is the best way to address homelessness? It’s time we talk.

As part of a valley-wide effort to listen deeply and learn from each other, our November Forum engages with the people in our area through On The Table sponsored by Silicon Valley Community Foundation. We can participate by adding our own stories and ideas at the SiVIC Forum.

Silicon Valley Community Foundation will survey participants for a report of the concerns and solutions that are raised. The report will be made public and used for grant making and policy decisions in our area. Add your voice to the mix and learn how to join local efforts to solve our housing crisis.
