Join us for the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless' annual meeting entitled, The Right to Speak: From Voting Booths to Shelter and Street Corners on Thursday, March 8th at 6pm.
This year's event will highlight the work of the The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio and their tremendous work defending the rights of people experiencing homelessness in our community. Freda J. Levenson, the legal director of the ACLU, will receive the Social Justice Award and speak about their work defending the right to vote for homeless individuals and the right for people to ask their neighbor for help on street corners. Join us as we give this well deserved award.
Furthermore, we will look at the accomplishments of NEOCH in 2017. This year brought transition to the agency and some amazing achievements including finally getting a new provider at the women's shelter along with extra funding. We will discuss the success of this multi-year campaign. We will present our annual report to the community and talk about the new visions for the future.
Finally, we present our Advocate of the Year award to long-time friend Angelo Anderson for his years of dedication to lifting up the voices of the un-housed in our community. Angelo started the homeless newspaper in Cleveland and continues to sell The Street Chronicle. He is part of the Street Voices Program to educate the community about the myths of homelessness and works at the 2100 Men's shelter to provide care and support for the Men currently experiencing homelessness.
