One of our awesome Antigone Leaders Leya Eguchi is organizing a Forum on Homelessness that you should check out if you have a chance.  Here are the details:

The goal of this forum is to send a strong message to the federal government to implement a national housing strategy and to step up their plan to address homelessness. This is also an opportunity for various activists and organizations to get together and strengthen our collective voice.
