In Their Own Words: Rights + Stigmas in Homeless Communities
6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 20 and March 19Houseless, east wing, level 1
Proposed responses to homelessness are as diverse as the people who experience it. There are basic rights, however, that advocates insist need to be emphasized for unhoused neighbors. Learn about the Houseless Bill of Rights and hear housed and unhoused residents discuss how stigma contributes to the problem of homelessness, particularly in Alaska Native and LGBTQ+ communities. Please use museum’s 7th Ave. entrance. Free.
This event is one of the partner programs associated with Houseless, an exhibition and community programming series at the museum Feb. 7 through April 5, 2020.
