Statement in Support of The Longest Day of Homelessness event

Statement in Support of The Longest Day of Homelessness event held on June 21st at Tommy’s Park in Portland June 14th, 2023

 

The Maine Green Independent Party is proud to support "The Longest Day of Homelessness" event that Homeless Voices for Justice hosts each year on (or close to) the summer solstice. The event will take place on Wednesday, June 21st at Tommy's Park in Portland between 10:00am and 3:00pm with speeches from community members at around 12:00pm.

The Longest Day of Homelessness event seeks to bring together the community to acknowledge the dangers of homelessness regardless of the time of year. While exposure to the elements feels clearly dangerous during a brutal Maine winter, the dangers of unsheltered living throughout the rest of the year are frequently overlooked. This event is a community-oriented collaboration.

The MGIP invites you to join us at The Longest Day of Homelessness event and learn more about our vision for a more humane and sustainable society. Together, we can make a difference for those who are most vulnerable and marginalized in our state

Sincerely,

Lyn Maravell, MGIP Co-Chair

Fred McCann, MGIP Co-Chair
