The Invisible Class explores what it truly means to be homeless in America, challenging stereotypes and examining the systemic causes of mass homelessness in the wealthiest nation in the world. From coast to coast the film is a day in the life of homelessness across America. From the system that created it, to the criminalization that perpetuates it, mass homelessness didn’t always exist. The Invisible Class explains how we got here.
The panel discussion will be hosted by Commissioner Heather Sielicki and will include representatives from local service providers, law enforcement, mental health and others. The panel will discuss the film and local efforts to support the unhoused community.
