Homeless Persons Memorial Day event set for Dec. 21

Every year, on the first official day of winter, hundreds of Philadelphians gather to remember those Philadelphians who died and to call for an end to homelessness.

Please join us for the 2022 Philadelphia Homeless Persons' Memorial Day on Wednesday, December 21, 4-5pm at Thomas Paine Plaza (in front of the Municipal Services Building at 15th St. and JFK). See more details and RSVP to the event on Facebook.

We have made much progress in Philadelphia in combating homelessness, but the crisis persists. We must continue to speak out about the struggles of people who experience homelessness, poverty, and addiction. We must all work together – including elected officials – to expand effective solutions and build a truly just society for all persons.

Please help us to gather the names of all those Philadelphians who have experienced homelessness and died in 2022. 

If you would like to help plan this year's Homeless Persons' Memorial Day event, please email here. The Planning Committee meets each Thursday, 11am-12:30pm until the event on December 21
