Community SLEEP OUT

May 5, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - May 6, 2017 @ 8:30 am

5th Annual COMMUNITY SLEEP OUT

Making the “Invisible” issues Visible
Friday, May 5, 6:30 p.m.
Until Saturday, May 6, 8:30 a.m.
New Location:  Durham Athletic Park in Durham
With only cardboard for a mattress, a hearty spirit, and a true passion for the cities and towns they call home, community leaders will gather to make issues like hunger, homelessness and poverty in the Triangle more visible for the nearly 200,000 people in our community living in poverty, 60,000 of which are children.

Programming for the evening will focus on bringing the spirit of collaboration to help tackle issues facing our community.  From round table discussions delving into the issue of child success and simulations demonstrating the ins and outs of the housing system to innovative approaches to social issues, at this event you’ll gain a new perspective on poverty in our area and take part in envisioning a brighter future for us all.
