An EvergreenTacoma Community Conversation:  New Perspectives on Housing in Tacoma

View the screening of a new documentary on the topic of housing in the Hilltop community.  The film Sustaining Hilltop: What's Really Going On? was developed and produced by alumni LaTonya Kadar '19 and Jayne Schmidtke '19 with students Sandi Oswalt and Charlene Chelley.  LaTonya and Jayne will be available  to answer questions about the film.

After the film, you will have an opportunity to share your ideas and explore different approaches to housing challenges in a generative, and engaging group discussion with Korbett Mosesly '11, MPA '17.

We hope to see you there as we celebrate the extraordinary spirit of the EvergreenTacoma alumni community.
