Homelessness, Hunger, and Fair Housing Rally November 18, 2009 1:00 PM City Building (5th Street Entrance) DID YOU KNOW THAT 3.5 MILLION AMERICANS, INCLUDING 1.5 MILLION CHILDREN, EXPERIENCE HOMELESSNESS EVERY YEAR? DID YOU KNOW THAT IN 2008 59% OF REQUESTS FOR FOOD ASSISTANCE CAME FROM FAMILIES, MANY FOR THE FIRST TIME? DID YOU KNOW THAT 40% OF THOSE EVICTED AS A RESULT OF FORECLOSURE IN THE US ARE RENTERS? The Richmond Human Rights Commission, in cooperation with the Earlham Volunteer Exchange, and the Bonner Center for Service and Vocation, will be holding a rally to raise awareness of the issues of homelessness, hunger, and fair housing, in support of Homelessness and Hunger Awareness Week at Earlham College.

All concerned residents of Richmond are encouraged to attend. Come Join Us! PLEASE BRING A NON-PERISHABLE FOOD ITEM TO DONATE. ALL FOOD DONATIONS AT THE RALLY WILL BE GIVEN TO THE EARLHAM COLLEGE FOOD DRIVE. PLEASE HELP US TO FEED THE HUNGRY, ESPECIALLY AS WE APPROACH THE HOLIDAY SEASON!
