December 21st is the longest night of the year.
And 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.
This year, on Friday, December 21st, Picture the Homeless and Judson Memorial Church will be holding our annual Homeless Memorial Service, to come together to remember homeless New Yorkers who passed away this past year–and stand together to promote justice for homeless New Yorkers still living!
This is a powerful, deeply moving event, and we encourage all friends and allies to come join us!
Friday, December 21 at 6 p.m.
Judson Memorial Church
55 Washington Square South (SW corner of Washington Sq Park)
