The California Association of Black Social Workers (CABSW) is having their 2018 symposium here in Oakland!

Title: The Homeless Epidemic: Impact on African American Family and Communities

Keynote Speaker: Candice Elder, M.S., founder and executive director of The East Oakland Collective. 

In California, the homeless population is disproportionately African-American. In Los Angeles, over 39% of the homeless population is African-American, and in Oakland that number is a staggering 70% of the homeless population. This symposium will work to identify the implications (historical & current) of how this crisis impacts African Americans, as well as identifying the appropriate skills to put into practice to address it.
