Design for Dignity Taskforce

This task force will identify a few very specific homelessness & housing policy ‘call to actions’ to prioritize and then will establish a road-map to accomplish moving forward on these call-to-actions.  There is also a group of “Yes and…” pro-housing advocates being led by LAplus, The Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce and Abundant Housing LA - and ideally once the D4D task force has had a chance to identify its core objectives we can align in effort and synthesize our ideas and call-to-actions together.  Multidisciplinary collaboration will be key to our success.

Within 6 to 8 months, if all goes well, we will have made some genuine progress towards offering ideas to help end our housing crisis.
