A housing march for homeless people in Atlanta

first_imgHousing rights activists marched Jan. 7 in an effort to make the city open warming and day shelters for homeless people who currently face harsh winter weather. The city forced the largest shelter to close in 2018 — effectively killing a number of people living on the streets. The march, sponsored by Atlanta Street Groomers, went from the Fulton County morgue to Atlanta City Hall where a press conference was held. Then marchers attended the City Council meeting to raise this issue with council people. The city claims to have solved homelessness in Atlanta, but the hundreds of people who are sleeping in subfreezing weather tell another story.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
