ACTIONS
 
- PERSONALLY REFLECT 
Say these aloud to yourself
Inspired by Aras's recommendations, repeat these: I believe that homelessness is solvable. I understand that we must fix systems, not people. I consider people experiencing homelessness in my community to be my neighbors. 
 
- BECOME INFORMED
Hear stories of homelessness from those experiencing it
Visit InvisiblePeople.tv which uses storytelling, education, news, and activism to change the narrative on homelessness. Their videos are compelling and tell a whole story we often don't see. They are on YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
