18th Annual Student Conference on Hunger and Homelessness
Seattle University Seattle, Washington November 11-13, 2005

Kick off your Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week right! Attend the largest national gathering of student activists working on these issues – the 18th Annual Conference of the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness at Seattle University on November 11th to November 13th, 2005.

If you are a student leader working on hunger, homelessness, or poverty-related issues there is only one place to be this November. If you are an administrator who works with service learning or civic engagement programs, advocacy groups, or campus religious organizations, you should send your top student leaders to Seattle for this conference.

Meet some of the best student leaders, organizers, and advocates in the U.S., hear about innovative campus programs, and learn organizing skills that will significantly improve your campus program. Conference participants will learn how to recruit new volunteers, develop other student leaders, run effective local campaigns and large community events, and inspire campus activism.

They are especially proud to host this year’s conference at Seattle University, an academic institution that has redefined what it means to be a good neighbor. The University has a long history of supporting social justice issues and recently hosted Tent City 3, a temporary encampment that provides shelter, support, and safety to approximately 100 homeless men and women.
