Social Media Resources
Ideas that spread, win. Use your social media platform to spread the idea that everyone deserves a safe, affordable, hopeful place to call home, and when that’s the case our entire community benefits.
Here are some resources to help you do that:
- Our YIMBYer Blog post
- Our Humanizing Homelessness Blog post
- Our NIMBY to NEIGHBOUR Blog post includes a collection of resources for further reading about why YIMBY is important and how to respond to possible challenges.
Here are some graphics you can share on Facebook:
On October 15, 2018, a group of close to 60 residents of Barrie gathered at the Southshore Community Centre to discuss how we could better respond to homelessness in our city, together. Learn more about that inaugural event below.
