- Jessica Roadman of Crossroads Urban Center on the launch of #WhereDoTheyGo.
- Aug. 9: Crossroads Urban Center and Alliance for a Better Utah will host a launch party for the release of the first in a series of three short videos highlighting the homelessness crisis in Utah. The videos will outline the growing affordable housing issue in Utah and will ask the question about impacted Utahns, “where do they go?”
- The one-minute video will be shown to the audience, followed by an open period for discussion. Along with the video, a petition will be published calling on Governor Herbert to include financial resources in his 2019 budget to provide for increased affordable housing and rapid rehousing options for singles and families facing homelessness.
