Amid a round of recent news about the increasing problem of homelessness in America, Jon Campbell appeared before a standing room-only audience of affordable housing advocates to call for renewed efforts to address the crisis.
“I think the headline for all of this should be, ‘America can’t afford unaffordable housing,’” he said, as the crowd applauded. “I really believe that’s the headline. And if we can all take that mantra forward from this place, we’re really going to make progress.”
Campbell, Wells Fargo’s head of philanthropy, led the panel on affordable housing June 4 at the 2019 Social Innovation Summit in Los Angeles. The two-day conference brought together nonprofit leaders, corporate executives, government officials, philanthropists, activists, and other leaders to explore new ways of effecting social change.
