Political Advocacy

Two weeks ago I had the privilege of attending the All Our Sisters first national conference on women and homelessness (www.alloursister.ca).  Reviewing the poster boards I saw one of the best examples of political advocacy around homelessness that I have seen in a while.  A group called ‘Homeless in Saskatoon‘ created Christmas cards to be sent to their Member of Parliament.  As you can see below, the cards had the tag line “From our home to yours” and featured pictures of rough sleeping accommodations.  A very powerful message, and one we just might have to copy here in London.
