coaltition for the homeless – gettin’ the word out

coalition72

don’t know who did the postering for the coalition – but love the juxtaposition of greedy lying bastards.

to keep up-to-date with homelessness in new york city, go to : coalition for the homeless – read their news feed, educate yourself about callahan v. carey.  callahan v. carey – my favorite thing about nyc. this legislation makes law – and therefore into lived reality between people – what the statue of liberty symbolizes. the last two lines of the poem mounted on her pedestal read:

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

every new yorker should be bursting with pride that here, we do not step around or over those who have fallen, no, we hold out our hand and  lift the fallen up till they too can find the strength to walk.
