Philadelphia Homeless Memorial Day
From our friends at Project HOME
Wednesday, December 21, 4:30 – 5:30 p.m.
Broad Street Ministry (Outside), 315 South Broad Street, Center City Philadelphia
Remember * Hope * Heal
On the shortest day of the year, hundreds of Philadelphians will gather to remember those homeless and formerly homeless Philadelphians who died in 2011 and to call for an end to homelessness.
As we gather this year, we recognize that our nation continues to struggle through a time of economic hardships: Unemployment and poverty are increasing, foreclosures continue at a record rate, and shelters and food pantries cannot meet the increased demand. But we cannot forget our most vulnerable citizens, those who pay the greatest price for our economic and political failures.
We use this occasion to call on all Philadelphians and all Americas to wake up and recommit ourselves to ending homelessness.
Warm beverages and ASL interpretation will be provided.
THE EVENT IS OUTSIDE -- DRESS WARMLY!
