Take the Quiz: Dispelling the Myths of San Jose’s Homeless
Our Gandhi Nonviolence Group will place two poster size boards in all 24 San Jose libraries. One will be a picture of a homeless person from the Blue Tarp Project and the other will be a “Take the Quiz: Dispelling the Myths of San Jose’s Homeless”. On the quiz board we’ve addressed 10 common myths and provided the answers. During the week of Sept 16th we will pair a homeless person with a homeless advocate and stand outside our libraries with the boards.
The goal is to open up the conversation about our huge homeless problem in San Jose supported by the DATA and not misconceptions and put a REAL FACE to it.
Our hope is that we can to build compassion, dispel stereotypes, and change people’s perceptions of who are homeless really are.Get Directions via Google Maps
