Homelessness Coalition Info Session
Sept. 19 | 12:00pm | WCC 1023
Come learn more about the intersection of homelessness and criminal justice! The Homelessness Coalition (HoCo) facilitates legal externships with the defense attorney of the Cambridge Homeless Court – externs assist him in advocating for clients on criminal matters and linking clients with social services. In addition HoCo connects students with volunteering opportunities at local shelters, informs shelter guests about legal services available to them, and hosts events about the criminalization of poverty. This semester HoCo is also considering a research project on assessing the civil legal needs of Cambridge’s homeless community. Please attend the meeting if you are interested in learning more or getting involved. Non-pizza lunch will be served.
