Ways to Assist in the Community

VOLUNTEER at a shelter, food bank, or soup kitchen.

SPEAK UP: Many major cities have laws that essentially criminalize homelessness by making it illegal for the homeless to sit, stand, sleep, or eat in public spaces. Recently, many cities have passed new laws that also make it illegal to provide aid for those in need, by imposing fines and even jail time for distributing food to hungry individuals on the street. If your city has passed food-sharing bans or similar laws that penalize the homeless and organizations that serve the homeless, then you can organize students to speak out against these policies. Collect petitions, gather handwritten letters, generate phone calls, or take other actions to urge your city’s mayor and city council to decriminalize homelessness. Learn More »
