A message from the Texas Homeless Network (advocacy@thn.org) …

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On November 14, advocates from across the county are participating in a National Call-In day to bring attention to the national fight to end homelessness. Will you put a reminder on your calendars now to call your Members of Congress on November 14?

Why now? Congress is facing a December 8 deadline to pass a budget for the Fiscal Year 2018, or face a government shutdown.This means that Congress is making funding decisions right now that will affect homelessness assistance programs.This is our chance to make sure Congress knows that this funding is vital for our community!

I urge you to participate by calling your Members of Congress on November 14. Also, please share this message with your networks. If each of you got 10 of your friends, coworkers, and fellow advocates to call on November 14, think of the impact we can make.

Set your reminder now, and get ready to call your Member of Congress.

Sincerely,

Eric Samuels,
President & CEO
Texas Homeless Network | 1713 Fortview Road, Austin, TX 78704
