3/18 – TBA Tikkun Olam Teach-In: Homelessness and Economic Injustice

Exploring the Issues of Homelessness and Economic Injustice?  Still Have Questions? Frustrated by How to React as an Individual and as a Community?

Please join us on March 18th at the TempleBeth Am Tikkun Olam Teach-In:  Homelessness and Economic Injustice as we wrestle with these and other questions:

What do you think a caring community should know about homelessness?

Is this a community problem or someone else’s misfortune?

What can I do to help?

What can we do as a community to help?

How does homelessness affect different populations such as adults, families, youth, chronically ill, mentally ill, chronic substance abusers?

The politics ­ Is this an issue for the city?  county? state?
