Why Sleep Out?
Since March of 2020, Covenant House New Jersey's (CHNJ) Diversity & Inclusion Task Force has been working tirelessly to educate, advocate and address our questions & challenges regarding diversity and inclusion for our CHNJ community.
Sleep Out: Action for Change is a virtual Sleep Out that will bring our community together in sacred space. Together, we will begin an open dialogue addressing issues including racism, human trafficking, LGBTQ, gender inequality, education & employment disparities, as these issues all have a direct impact on our youth. Our hope is that Covenant House New Jersey will be a bridge to unite communities, raise awareness around the social injustices our youth have endured and be an action step towards having courageous conversations.
Sleep Out: Action for Change is a fundraiser that will support Covenant House New Jersey's programs and services. We invite you to join us for a virtual program and then sleep outside in your car, porch, or backyard. Each participant is required to fundraise. The suggested fundraising goal is $300 for students ages 12-21 and $1,000 for adult participants.
SLEEP OUT IN SOLIDARITY WITH YOUTH FACING HOMELESSNESS
