Description

A disproportionate number of minorities experience homelessness - issues of race, diversity, and bias should be part of our conversations within our programs that serve minority populations. The National Center on Homelessness among Veterans in collaboration with VA’s Employee Education System have developed a two-part podcast series on Racial Equity and Racial Justice. Dr. Roger Casey, Director, Education & Dissemination, National Center on Homelessness among Veterans interviews a Clinical Psychologist on creating safe places to have race conversations and talks with a VA Homeless Program manager about his personal and professional experiences managing a program providing direct services to homeless Veterans.
Moderator: Roger Casey, PhD, LCSW, Director, Education & Dissemination, VA National Center on Homelessness among Veterans.
