2023 Day on the Hill
Wednesday, March 29th, 2023
Thank You Advocates, Program Participants and Sponsors!
Thank you to this year's Day on the Hill speakers, Dr. Naheed Murad and Meredith Campbell.
Dr. Naheed Murad, is a founder of ZACAH, a non-profit working to house the unhoused in the twin cities. Dr. Murad spoke on her research about the status of homelessness in Minnesota, and the work ZACAH is doing to get unhoused people into housing.
Meredith Campbell of Mission at Settled assists faith communities in housing chronically homeless people on faith community land in Sacred Settlements. She also serves the Sacred Settlement at Mosaic Church in Saint Paul. Meredith spoke about establishing the settlement at Mosaic, and how this community-first form of housing provides stability and community to unhoused people.
HF1872, the Sacred Settlements bill we are advocating for this year, establishes this model as a recognized form of housing in state statute.
