We are proud to report that Western Center housing advocate Anya Lawler will be a part of Governor Gavin Newsom’s new homelessness task force. The group will “advise the Administration on solutions to address the state’s homelessness epidemic. Once convened, these leaders will join Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg and Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas in meetings across the state to assist local governments in crafting their regional strategies to address homelessness, with a particular focus on homelessness prevention and early intervention.”
Anya has been a housing policy advocate on behalf of low-income Californians for decades — her experience and priorities will be invaluable in the administration’s pursuit to end California’s homelessness crisis.
