Seattle Homelessness & Roots
A growing issue in Seattle and the U.S.
Why are people poor?

People are poor due to the systematic oppression in our society (i.e. racism, income inequality, sexism, transphobia, homophobia,etc.)
"We believe that we are here not to 'fix' individuals but to provide relief for the oppression created by systems that are not set up to serve everyone well."
5,000-10,000 per year
