On the morning of July 25, six buses departing from ten different locations in New Jersey will be leaving for the Congressional Reception.
A boxed lunch will be provided for attendees at the Dirksen Senate Auditorium.
The confirmation fee for the buses is $10 per person.
However, if you travel on your own there is no charge but you still must register for the event.
The program for the Congressional Reception begin at 12:00 p.m. and ends at 4:00 p.m.
Voter registration forms will be provided on each bus for anyone who is interested and not yet registered to vote in New Jersey.
The Congressional Reception is a unique event allowing New Jersey residents who have been impacted by homelessness to share their stories with their elected officials. There will be one or two speakers from each of New Jersey’s twelve congressional districts.
If you are interested in being a speaker or know someone who is interested, email Kate Kelly.
Do you still have questions? No problem! All questions will be answered during our webinar and there will be plenty of opportunity at the end of the webinar to ask questions. If you are unable to tune in at that time, it will be posted for future reference.
If you are passionate about providing affordable housing in New Jersey, you should attend the July 25th, a Congressional Reception will be held at the Dirksen Senate Auditorium in Washington D.C. This event will allow New Jersey residents who are working poor, below the poverty line and or impacted by homelessness to urge their elected officials in Washington to make No Cuts to Housing and remind them that Opportunity Starts at Home.
We know that by joining together and amplifying our voices, we can have an impact on the decisions that are made in Washington DC. Join Monarch Housing Associates and our 35 partners from New Jersey to make the case that homelessness is solvable a problem. The federal government must be a full partner in ensuring an adequate breadth of services are available to prevent children, people with disabilities, the elderly, and all of our neighbors in NJ from experiencing the homelessness.
Register today to attend the Congressional Reception. Everyone needs to register even if you are traveling on your own.
