Philadelphia Homeless Memorial Day

As we approach the first official day of winter, hundreds of Philadelphians will gather to remember those homeless and formerly homeless Philadelphians who died in 2013 and to call for an end to homelessness.

As we gather this year, we recognize that one of the leading contributing factors to homelessness is the lack of access to quality health care. Our nation is in the midst of a heated debate on adequate health care policies; meanwhile Pennsylvania can and must do more to ensure health coverage to all our citizens, especially many of our poorest brothers and sisters. If we want to see the day when no citizen has to live or die on our streets or in shelters, we need just public policies that ensure access to quality health care, along with a strong social safety net and meaningful economic opportunities, for all Americans.

We use this occasion to call on all Philadelphians and all Americans to recommit ourselves to ending homelessness.
