Public Forum and Tour of Wellness Center Slated

 

A community town hall on the plight of the city’s homeless is set for Saturday, March 9, followed by a tour of the site of the proposed Alameda Wellness Center.

“Making our Invisible Unhoused Visible — building a community where everyone belongs” will focus on who are Alameda’s homeless, what they experience living here, what services are available to them and how the Wellness Center will help fill some of the need. 

The two-hour town hall at 10 a.m. is sponsored by the Alameda Justice Alliance (AJA) and the Yes on A campaign and takes place on the second floor of Building E at 1345 McKay Ave. Parking is available at the lot next to the building. The 30-minute tour of the buildings of the former federal facility will follow at noon. 

There will be refreshments, time for questions, a chance to meet local activists from AJA and find out more about the campaign for Yes on A in the April 9 special election from Councilmember John Knox White, campaign chair. 

Admission is free, but registration is encouraged at facebook.com/events/402174300546449.
