Practice Informed Policy Recommendations Based on Work with Our Unhoused Relatives

STTARS hosted its annual Winter Solstice webinar on December 21, the first day of Winter and the longest night of the year. We chose this date as a time to expand our knowledge around the complex intersections of housing insecurity, homelessness and Gender Based Violence; hear from frontline housing advocates on what they are doing in their communities, focus on the critical need for legal assistance, and develop practice informed policy recommendations that uplift the voices of survivors. This is also an important time to bring awareness and understanding to this critical issue and to honor all our unsheltered relatives who have lost their lives on the streets.
