National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty 30th Anniversary Celebration- July 11, 2019, Washington, D.C.
HerStory Ensemble was extended an invitation to attend this milestone observation of the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty’s(NLCHP) work protecting rights of people experiencing homelessness, or at risk of homelessness. Over the years NLCHP continues to secure the education of children without permanent housing, the right to counsel for people facing eviction, homeless bill of rights, and homeless prevention. NLCHP has supported the work of HerStory Ensemble by providing testimony to the Delaware State Legislature supporting the call for a Homeless Bill of Rights for the State of Delaware, and participating a few years ago in the Housing Not Handcuffs Justice Walk, held on MLK Day in Dover, DE. HerStory Ensemble is currently involved in the “I Ask For Help Because” campaign addressing unconstitutional panhandling policies and laws. The campaign is sponsored by NLCHP and involves groups and organizations across the country.
