One of Council Member Santa Cruz’s passions is using bicycles to create community and mobilize around issues. One of her other passions is helping Tucson’s unsheltered community gain access housing and resources. Join us for an update from the Ward 1 City Council Member Lane Santa Cruz on Tucson’s homelessness crisis, and stay for the two-way conversation on just when do businesses and the City talk to each other? Who do you talk to, when, why, and how? And what do you want the City to hear? Bring thoughts and questions for a robust fireside chat with Lane Santa Cruz (recent beneficiary of a first ever Queer Fam Fundraiser!).
Plus ample networking, raffle prizes, and more. Our gratitude goes out to our sponsor Bloom Wealth Alliance. We can't wait to see you there!
