Ritter Center, a Federally Qualified Health Center, launched a community event to end homelessness in Marin County. "Under the Stars: A Sleepout to End Homelessness in Marin" is an event designed to ask the public to give up their warm beds for just one night this summer to help raise $150,000 for Ritter Center's housing support and healthcare services that prevent and resolve homelessness. On the night of July 31, 2021, Ritter Center is asking individuals, families and community teams to gather in living rooms, floors, sofas, decks, porches, driveways and backyards with the intention to spend the night in any place other than a bed. "The idea is to create a greater understanding of the challenges people experiencing homelessness endure, and to call for an end to homelessness in Marin County. We recognize that choosing to sleep in an area other than your bed is not going to remotely recreate what it is like to sleep on the streets. But it can allow for a pause in our busy lives to reflect on the fact that it has become normalized in our society to walk by a human living on the streets and continue on with our day. Normalizing people experiencing homelessness is not acceptable and we shouldn't tolerate this condition for our fellow human beings," said Mark Shotwell, Ritter Center Executive Director. "Under the Stars: A Sleepout to End Homelessness in Marin" is designed to raise public awareness of the complex issues around homelessness, and shatter common myths while building compassion as a community, and igniting a movement of social change. Under the Stars will include speakers and stories from the community including staff, board members, partners, clients and donors who are working to end homelessness in Marin County. Live-streamed activities from 6-8 pm PST, hosted by Executive Director, Mark Shotwell, will include remarks by Marin County Supervisor Damon Connolly and a special video message by U.S. Congressman Jared Huffman.
