Florida currently has the third largest homeless population in the country, but resources for assistance – both public and private – are dwindling. Recently, some Florida counties have even prohibited certain forms of assistance. Thus, responsible citizens need to ask: What moral obligations do people have with respect to homelessness? How do we best live up to these obligations? And what conditions – cultural, economic, psychological, and ethical – contribute to homelessness? To explore such questions, the FGCU philosophy program is hosting a conference on the topic of homelessness on March 21, 2016. This one-day conference brings together academic speakers from different disciplines as well as community organizers to reflect on the problem of homelessness today.

This is a public event. No registration is required. For details on the program, please visit:
