The Solution To Homelessness is Housing
How It Started
In March of 2019, I in-took various Ted Talk presentations and published articles on the topic of homelessness and poverty. In doing so, I garnered a wealth of knowledge and a vast understanding on the topic with the support of facts, statistics, solutions and the challenges accompanying poverty faced here in America as well as abroad. In seeking to have questions answered on the issue of homelessness, I garnered a greater understanding and an empowering perspective enabling me to evolve my own views on this epidemic.
My learning experience opened my awareness and prompted me to ponder the idea that rather than judging, what if we asked more questions. When we think we know, we perpetuate stereotypes largely resulting in a harmful cause-and-effect of sorts. Such lack of information oft-times leads to a lack of empathy based on ignorance resulting in much indifference, potential antagonism, and a lack of interpersonal interest in those most vulnerable in society.

As long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality exist in our world, none of us can truly rest.
Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth. These are one and the same fight.
Wars of nations are fought to change maps. But wars of poverty are fought to map change.
