Volume 103 | December 21st, 2021
An entire generation has been raised in a world where it is accepted normal to see human beings sleeping on the street. All too often, those who die on the streets are not connected to family or support systems who can hold a funeral or properly honor them. Because of this injustice, the National Coalition for the Homeless (NCH) and the National Health Care for the Homeless Council (NHCHC) commemorate December 21—the longest night of the year. NCH and NHCHC established the first Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day in 1990 to remember those who died during the year without housing. Thirty-one years later, the epidemic has grown, with more people living and dying without housing. Let us remember all those who lost their lives, both in Maricopa County and throughout our country, for lack of housing; reflect on the shocking inhumanity of homelessness, and call for meaningful policy changes to ensure that no life is lived or lost while unhoused.
This evening, our Campus partner CASS is hosting an outdoor event at 5:30pm at the Van Buren in downtown Phoenix. Click Here for details.
