Yes, Tedrico!  We who've been on the street need to get the ear of other
publics--including policy makers, whose decisions so profoundly affect our
prospects.  So, I ask you all:

*How can HPN members help get "the public" and officials (in government,
business and nonprofits) to hear and heed homeless people's advice?

Think of all the communities and groups and personal insights we represent
here on Homeless People's Network!  Let's Network for justice!  But
how?--Tom
