APA Los Angeles and AIA|LA Present:
Conference to Address Homelessness | Housing Affordability | Neighborhoods
With the recent passage of LA County’s Measure H and the City of LA’s Measure HHH (as well as recent momentum at the State level to streamline housing production), public support for solutions to homelessness and housing affordability is markedly changing.
On Friday, July 14, AIA|LA will host the second annual D4D2 DESIGN FOR DIGNITY conference to focus on solutions that address homelessness, housing affordability, and neighborhoods. Purchase Tickets (AIA Members: $95/ Public: $135)
How can we all work together to implement elements of Measures H and HHH in order to better serve those in need? What innovative design solutions and resilient programs are possible in this shifting political climate? How do we channel investments to enhance the quality of life in our communities and increase amenities for all without displacing anyone or causing additional people to be priced-out of their neighborhoods?
Do join us on July 14 to hear from representatives from city and county government, successful supportive housing providers, policy experts, architects offering best practices, and others passionate about reducing homelessness in our region.
Throughout the day, attendees will provide essential contributions during sessions set aside for feedback from the audience.
