For many the winter solstice is a welcome sign of holiday celebrations to come. But for the homeless, it means 14 hours, 53 minutes, and 43 seconds of darkness — the longest night of the year and a reminder of the long, cold Winter yet to come.
There are over 7,000 homeless people in the Boston area who will have to endure another Winter. Join the Housing Justice Coalition in our efforts to change all that while we remember those who live and often die on our streets. Come to Boston City Hall Plaza on Monday, December 21, at 4:15 pm for a speak out and candlelight vigil for those without a home for the holidays. We will also be singing some special holiday carols to convey to the City of Boston our demands for housing for the homeless NOW!
