Advocacy and Homelessness: A Panel Discussion

Monday, April 12, 2010, 6:30 p.m.

Washington DC is home to a very active community of advocates, fighting for fair housing and the rights of people without homes. As the seat of this nation's democratic government, DC is an epicenter for advocacy, activism, and social change.

DC is also home to a large population of homeless people, and that population grows larger each day, as housing prices continue to skyrocket, and job loss deepens.

Come learn about some of the movements currently underfoot to fight homelessness--from local grassroots campaigns to larger national campaigns. And find out what YOU can do to help people get the housing and services they need to get back on their feet and thrive.
