National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day Vigil

Dec. 21, the Winter Solstice, is National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day. The Vermont Workers’ Center, in solidarity with the National Union of the Homeless, will be holding a vigil on the Brattleboro Common starting at 4 PM. This is one of a series of vigils being held across the country remembering those we’ve lost in the streets and in the struggle. There will be an opportunity to lift up individuals who participants wish to remember, and also for people to share experiences with homelessness or other ways the housing crisis has affected them and people they care about. We also welcome people to join in support of our community members who are struggling with homelessness and housing precarity.

We will have candles and people are also welcome to bring their own. This is an outdoor event & we strongly encourage masking and will have masks available.

    I wasn’t aware of the “National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day.”
    Winter Solstice is an appropriate time to hold the event. Sorry I missed it. I hope it was well attended.
