Please join Danielle Pollen on Sunday, December 8 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm at TS Dupont for a charity yoga class to benefit the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty.
Each year, more than 3.5 million people spend time living on the streets or in shelters, including 1.6 million children. Almost 7 million more are doubled-up—with no home of their own—due to economic hardship. These numbers are now increasing dramatically, as the foreclosure crisis and unemployment push more and more Americans out of their homes. The number of homeless school children has increased 72 percent since the beginning of the recession.
The National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty serves as the legal arm of the nationwide movement to prevent and end homelessness. It uses the power of the law to represent homeless families, children, and communities. The Law Center’s attorneys go into courtrooms and the halls of power to protect our society’s most vulnerable members –and to uphold their human rights. The Law Center is the only national legal advocacy organization dedicated solely to this cause.
Through impact litigation, policy advocacy, and public education, the Law Center addresses the root causes of homelessness at the local, state, and national levels. Click here to learn more.
