Sleep Out 2013

National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week 2013


 This week, members of Faces of Homelessness are busy speaking to area colleges and universities about the injustice of homelessness and poverty. The Faces of Homelessness Speakers Bureau challenges myths and sterotypes about homelessness year-round, but this week we work tirelessly in partner with Housing Our Neighbors, students from area colleges and universities, people experiencing homelessness, and other advocates to raise awareness of the symptoms of growing poverty and inequality and enlist community members in the fight to end homelessness.

Join us for the Sleep Out for Housing Justice this Saturday, November 23rd--the culminating event of this years' National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week!
 
  
  • 5pm Rally at McKeldin Square (Light & Pratt Streets in the Inner Harbor) followed by a march to City Hall
  •  
  • 6-9pm Event programming at City Hall (100 Holliday Street)
 There will be a free hot dinner for all, a distribution of donated winter coats and sleeping bags to people experiencing homelessness. The night will include a series of speakers and break out sessions on the current state of homelessness, why it persists, and what we can do to break the cycle.

  • 9pm on Sleep Out
