Homelessness Awareness Walk:
Kennesaw State University would like to bring awareness of the many challenges individuals experiencing homelessness endure. We are conducting a homeless awareness walk on Monday, November 2, 2020.
Join us as we walk to raise awareness for homelessness.
Due to the health hazards of Covid-19, we ask that you take your own path on your walk-in solidarity with our homeless neighbors. Make sure to practice safe social distancing! While you walk, grab some headphones and listen to our Homelessness Education Playlist on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCMsl7CSMQbWDQ-ryCSjixDE-cyi-X5bd
Homelessness Awareness Walk: Backpack Challenge:
As an individual experiencing homelessness, if you don’t have a car or another safe place to store your belongings, you may be forced to carry everything you own on your person.
Hence, we have created the backpack challenge, to empathize with our homeless neighbors. While you participate in the Walk, we challenge you to carry a backpack with as many of these supplies as you can.
Think of what it feels like to be limited to the contents of a backpack serving as your only worldly possessions
