December 21st is the Winter Solstice, and the longest night of the year. It’s on this night, when the cold and the darkness seem most overwhelming, that communities across the United States come together to honor the lives of homeless men and women who passed away this year, and to draw attention to the fact that many homeless lives are cut short because we, as a society, can’t find a way to end homelessness.
Picture the Homeless has held a memorial on this date every year since its founding. It’s a powerful, deeply moving event, and we encourage all friends and allies to come join us.
