In today's in the news episode:

 

Michael encourages us to write our senator and congressmen and ask them to stop the flow of money toward researching the causes of homelessness and ask them what are they doing personally doing in their life to reach out to the homeless?

 

Homeless Sweeps: The city government keeps pushing people from one place to another and no matter where they go, they continue to get moved. When sweeps happen, people get further behind. It is hurting their chances of getting off the streets. Michael provides an example that happened to a couple, who Knowing Me Ministries was working with to help them find a place to live.

 

Homeless Bill of Rights: Michael talks about what it is and he encourages people to get with non profits in their community who are advocating for the Homeless Bill of Rights.
