The Research Committee of Heart in Hand LA, in collaboration with AWARE at UCLA hosted a workshop concentrated on the intersection of homelessness and immigration. The session was held on May 6, 2021 with members of both organizations in attendance. The interactive and discussion-based format of this workshop aimed to create a safe and welcoming space for fruitful and enlightening conversations and sharing of various perspectives on the matter.
Below is the presentation segment of the workshop organized and led by Research Interns, Kiran Marla and Sreeram Kurada. The issue was examined through various angles, namely causes, challenges, prevention, services, demographic, inequities, impact of the current pandemic, as well as, potential solutions.
