AZCEH was honored to have Mr. Olivet at last year's conference, providing a history of homelessness from the national perspective, in conjunction with Arizona's own long-time advocate, Mr. Fred Karnas. Given recent national conversations regarding race in America, we also look forward to continuing the conversation Mr. Olivet began with last year's breakout session, The Impact of Racial Inequality on Homelessness. Join us at the 23rd Annual Statewide Conference to End Homelessness to hear more, learn from, and be inspired by Mr. Olivet in order to create change through your OWN story.
