Social justice: Stand Down Nov 9 to support homeless veterans

November is Veterans Homeless Awareness Month, so it is fitting that the Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University has organized a Stand Down in Lafayette, Indiana, to serve the needs of the area’s homeless veterans. This Stand Down is a community effort created for homeless veterans in the Lafayette area. It allows veterans to rest from the combat of homelessness and receive services and resources. If you have any time during the day on Nov 9, it is very worthwhile to stop by the Tippecanoe Fair Grounds and see how this community supports our veterans. UU Social Justice Committee is donating $330 in City Bus tokens.  Contact co-chairs Tom McConville, tmcconville1200@comcast.net or Joan Marshall, jmarshal900@yahoo.com for more.
