Help the NYC Dept. of Homeless Services Conduct Outreach

The NYC Department of Homeless Services (DHS) is conducting their annual Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE) on January 31, 2011, from 10:30 PM – 4:00 AM. It’s a unique volunteer opportunity that will take a few hours of your time. HOPE produces a point-in-time estimate of the unsheltered chronic street homeless population in New York City. The information gathered by volunteers during HOPE 2011 is critical to measuring the ongoing efforts to overcome street homelessness at DHS and their partner agencies. We need approximately 3,000 volunteers to help survey the number of homeless individuals living on city streets, under bridges, in parks and in other public places.

Senator Jack Martins Reflects on International Holocaust Remembrance Day

"Today is a day we reflect on one of the darkest hours our world has ever witnessed. At a time where many learned scholars have proclaimed that 'the world was sick,' too many sat still and simply looked the other way while genocide was perpetrated. It's too simple to say that we must never forget. We must educate. We must discuss. We must listen to those who lived through this human tragedy. The United Nations has proclaimed today to be International Holocaust Remembrance Day. For many of the people I represent, the Holocaust is not just a day to memorialize, it's a day that we remind ourselves that injustice, genocide and freedom of religion are not just catchphrases we utter. We live them."
