Awareness Day recalls sweeps

A homeless-awareness day will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 12 in
Covington's Goebel Park at 5th and Philadelphia streets. Lunch, clothing,
personal-hygiene items and information about services for the homeless will
be available at the park. There will also be a speech on homeless issues.

The event is a way of remembering the city's sweeps of homeless camps and a
2002 homeless march, which drew hundreds concerned about the way homeless
were being treated, according the Recovery Network of Northern Kentucky.

People who have been homeless organized the event with the support of the
Recovery Network and the Northern Kentucky Homeless and Housing Coalition.
