Advocacy: At the Capitol and Beyond

On March 13th, House of Charity staff and clients joined thousands of others in advocating for the homeless at the capitol. We met with legislators, attended hearings and connected with others who care as much for those experiencing homelessness as we do.
The highlights of the legislative agenda created by the Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless are:
– Invest $15 mil. in the Emergency Services Program
– $200/mo. increase for the Minnesota Family Investment Program
– Restore the Vote
While the day on the hill is vitally important, advocacy doesn’t stop when we leave the capitol. That’s why we need you. The dire situations of thousands of Minnesotans are being silenced and it’s our responsibility to raise our voices for them.
Please join us in the important advocacy work. Learn more about where we need you most and what events you can attend:
