Coming of Age: Celebrating 18 Years of the COH

Leave a comment

On September 8, over 200 of our supporters and art lovers joined us in celebration of the 18th anniversary of the Coalition on Homelessness. It was wonderful to see so many people turn out once again to support our work and enjoy good art, good music and good food, all in good company.

The event was marked by the aftermath of the destruction of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast by the combined forces of nature and structural injustice. However, spirits were high as the occasion marked the endurance of an organization that aspires to drive itself out of existence by bringing poor people to lead the struggle for social justice. Until the day that such social justice makes unnecessary the existence of social workers and activists, let’s dance as we fight, because a cause that has no place for fun is not worth fighting for.

By the way, if you missed this party, stay tuned for forthcoming events, as we have some coming soon.

The staff and volunteers of the Coalition on Homelessness would like to extend their special thanks to the following individuals and concerns for their support of “Coming of Age – Celebrating 18 Years of the COH”
