Out in Tech SF | Fighting Youth Homelessness in the Bay Area

June 6, 2019 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Homelessness is a national crisis, acutely felt in the Bay Area and disproportionately experienced by the LGBT+ community. Why is that? What can the tech community do to help?


In celebration of Pride month, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI), Baker McKenzie, and Out in Tech SF are bringing together child welfare advocates and experts on the issue of homelessness to discuss the unique challenges facing LGBT homeless youth and explore why this already vulnerable population is more prone to homelessness in our community here in the Bay Area as well as nationally. There will also be a call to action for all attendees. Local organizations working to reduce homelessness or provide essential services will be invited to present their work as well as bring one specific volunteer/ engagement opportunity which attendees can sign up to participate in on the spot.


The panel will:




  • define what homelessness is and is not




  • explore the reasons LBGT+ youth disproportionately experience homelessness




  • highlight resources available to homeless youth and LGBT+ homeless youth in particular




  • spotlight local organizations working to combat the crisis in the Bay Area and their strategies that have been successful




  • include a call to action for the audience: volunteer and engagement opportunities with the organizations highlighted




Volunteer Fair – A Call to Action:


Bay Area organizations working to reduce homelessness or provide essential services will be invited to present their work with the aim of engaging audience members in volunteer work on this issue beyond this evening. Each organization will be provided a table for exhibiting materials both before and after the panel discussion for audience members to engage with them, pick up materials for further reading, and get involved. In addition, we will invite each organization to bring along one very specific volunteer/ engagement opportunity which attendees can sign up to participate in on the spot and we announce from the stage.
