So the Jackson Kiwanis Club is holding a rally for the homeless in Lakewood’s town center on Sunday, April 22nd.

“This will be composed of forums to help the homeless to understand safety issues. It will also provide forums for the people who advocate for the homeless. We’re also going to have some seminars for government officials to see how programs in other locations in the state have been successfully run.”

Meegan says Other activities will include health screenings, grooming stations, voter registration, musical entertainment and a time to recognize the groups who have helped the homeless in the past.

The free four-hour event starts at 12:30 p.m. It will conclude with a discussion of ending homelessness as a social justice issue and a Q&A session with the homeless and public participating.
