Though the 2013 election is over, the United to End Homelessness coalition is continuing its effort to promote proven solutions to homelessness. We’re meeting with NYC’s citywide elected leaders, City Council members, and government officials to advocate for the ideas within our platform and briefing bookWe urge you to get involved in any way you can. You can distribute our briefing book to your City Council member, share our message via social media, and learn more about other advocacy campaigns.

Get involved as an individual

If you are an individual and not affiliated with a group, you can still be a part of our campaign! New Yorkers are loud — help us spread our message!

Every like, retweet, or print-out will help us attract the attention of New York City’s policymakers and elected officials. If you believe that homelessness is an issue that must be addressed by NYC’s new Administration and City Council, we urge you to join us and be part of the solution!
