Youth Homelessness Awareness

25 Nov

The severity of the level of homelessness in Canada has been hidden for quite sometime so I find it ironic that the campaign for a national youth homelessness awareness day would also be hidden. While conducting research for this project, I stumbled upon on the campaign by Ontario MP Carolyn Bennett and Virgin Unite, the non-profit foundation of the Virgin Group, for Canada to create a national day to advocacy for the homeless youth. (Please noted that November is National Youth Homelessness Awareness MONTH in the US). I don’t think a day of recognition is too much to ask.
