Memorial Day Calendar

Seven events will be held in NJ

Homeless Persons' Memorial DayOn December 21, 2010, at least seven Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day events will be held in New Jersey. This date has been chosen as a time to remember all homeless people who died in the past year as a result of their lack of shelter or care. December 21 is the day with the least amount of light and has the longest night.

The NJ Advocacy Network to End Homelessness last year assembled resources that can be used in public worship over the sabbath weekend preceding December 21. To access this material click here.

This is the calendar of events. If we have missed an event or need to update any information let us know by clicking here.
