On Thursday, February 4th at 5:30 p.m. on Zoom, individuals experiencing homelessness will question 10 mayoral candidates about their approach to this critical issue in a “first-of-a-kind” mayoral forum on homelessness. The forum was organized by the leaders of the effort to keep the men temporarily housed in The Lucerne hotel on 79th Street in place: Da Homeless Hero, a resident of the hotel, and UWS Open Hearts Initiative, a local group of supporters.
Mayoral candidates have already been attending rallies at the hotel, and several have criticized Mayor de Blasio’s decision to move the men to another hotel downtown — a move that has since been delayed by the courts.
The candidates who will be present are: Eric Adams, Shaun Donovan, Kathryn Garcia, Ray McGuire, Carlos Menchaca, Dianne Morales, Scott Stringer, Joycelyn Taylor, Maya Wiley, and Andrew Yang.
