Homeless Memorial Day Vigil (click to follow Facebook group)
Thursday, December 19, 2019, 5-6 pm
Thomas Paine Plaza, Philadelphia

1401 John F Kennedy Blvd, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19102

As we approach the first official day of winter, hundreds of Philadelphians will gather to remember those homeless and formerly homeless Philadelphians who died in 2019 and to call for an end to homelessness.

We have made much progress in Philadelphia in combating homelessness, but the crisis persists. The opioid epidemic is claiming hundreds of lives. We face the prospects of massive cuts in housing and healthcare. Many youth in our community are at risk of homelessness.  We must continue to speak out about the struggles of people who experience homelessness, poverty, and addiction. We must all work together – including elected officials – to expand effective solutions and build a truly just society for all persons.

Please join us as we honor the lives of our friends and neighbors, and as we call on all Philadelphians and all Americans to recommit ourselves to ending homelessness.
