Speaker: Fred Spannaus

October 31st: “Insidious, Implicit Bias”

To endure implicit bias is to suffer a series of tiny, cruel papercuts, one after another. Fred Spannaus, the Human Relations Commission’s Investigator, will tell stories of implicit bias and suggest how to recognize it where it’s hardest to see — in ourselves.

“History of Homelessness in the US” Fred Spannaus

Fred Spannaus will discuss how homelessness emerged, how it was once virtually eliminated, and why our public policy choices matter. He will illustrate how federal approaches to homelessness have evolved over the past nine decades. Kathy Sorensen will serve as the service leader.
