Town Hall Series on Homelessness

With more than 8,000 people experiencing homelessness in Alameda County each night, the commitment to addressing homelessness is a top priority for our county, city and the community. In early 2023, Supervisor Keith Carson is hosting a series of virtual town halls on this important topic. As they occur, we will regularly update this page with the most recent recordings and presentation materials.
