Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation will host “Indy’s Eviction Problem: Status, Strategies, and Solutions” on Thursday, November 4 starting at 6:30pm. Family Promise of Greater Indianapolis is organizing this awareness event. According to organizers, it will examine the initiatives that have been undertaken and what still can be when it comes to eviction issues in the city.
Three guest speakers will address those topics:
Chief Justice Loretta Rush (Indiana Supreme Court) by video remarks recorded for this event
Judge Garland Graves (Warren Township Small Claims Court)
Fran Quigley (Director, Health & Human Rights Clinic at IU McKinney School of Law)
This event is designed especially for volunteers of the Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) shelter program at Family Promise, but the public is welcome to attend. You can register by clicking here.
IHC and IHN have a deep history with one another. Our congregation has welcomed families facing homelessness to find shelter, meals and friendship for about 25 years. Hundreds of IHC families have served dinners, stayed overnight, driven the IHN van, donated pajamas and housewares to help these families until they could find permanent housing. If you are interested in volunteering with Family Promise or want to learn more, email Mitch Katz or Judy Sosin.
