DOPE JUNE May 25 2018
The Seattle/King County Coalition on Homelessness provides public education about the root causes of homelessness and advocates for solutions to provide housing and justice for people forced to live on the street. They collaborate with other organizations working to provide affordable housing and to end homelessness, advocate for policy changes, and organize the yearly One Night Count of people sleeping unsheltered in King County. King County now has the third largest homelessness population in the United States, behind only New York City and Los Angeles. King County also has one of the highest median incomes in the United States. There has been some disheartening and hateful rhetoric about homelessness in Seattle over the past month, and at Poseurs we think it is very important to support the rights and humanity of our neighbors living on the street. We are very proud to support The King County Coalition on Homelessness this month. Ending homelessness will take a lot of political will in Seattle, but it will also take us all reexamining the deep biases and myths we harbor about people experiencing homelessness. Come practice with us this month and do the work! Self-study for social change, practice with cool people, give your hard earned dollars to a worthy cause. Dope Moments, every Thursday in June at 6:15pm. Give whatever you can afford, come be part of this community and make a difference!
