27th Annual Interfaith Convocation and Overnight Vigil for Housing Justice
The Interfaith Assembly on Homelessness and Housing invites you and your community to join the 27th Annual Interfaith Convocation and Overnight Vigil for Housing Justice. On Thursday, May 31 we will stand together and bear witness to the crisis of the homelessness and those at risk of losing their homes and call for solutions.
As New York City looks for new solutions to the growing problem of homelessness, the Interfaith Assembly invites you to join the housed, the homeless, people of faith, and people of good will in a call for housing justice.

As crucial decisions are made that effect the lives of those struggling to find or maintain a home, the voice of New Yorkers and people of faith and compassion must be loud and clear.
With rising numbers of individuals and families in shelters each night, this year we are raising our voices in support of new, sustainable rent subsidy programs in order to get people into permanent housing. With the cancellation of the Advantage Rent Subsidy Program earlier this year, and regulations to restrict entry into city shelters, our efforts are of the utmost importance at this time and your support is crucial.
Be a part of the Interfaith Assembly's 27th annual convocation, stand for Housing Justice, and help support the Assembly's advocacy efforts and Homeless Empowerment programs.
