Description

Join us in celebrating the launch of....

I May Not Have A Home ... But I Have Rights

Stories of homelessness are not always for children... this book is!

Written from lived experience and illustrated by children "I May Not Have A Home" is an educational tool to start a discussion about Homelessness and Human Rights. It sets an example that we shouldn't fear what we don't understand, we should educate.

The launch will include guest speakers, including the authors of the Homeless Charter of Rights, and live music. The event is open to all and will be held in the Centre Court of Eau Claire Market, Calgary. Pre-Order VIP Tickets purchasers will receive a copy of the book on launch day, and access to the VIP room (to the side of the centre court) to join the author and contributors to the book for refreshments.

More about I May Not Have A Home:

This book is based on the Homeless Charter of Rights written by the Client Action Committee, a group of advocates and ambassadors with lived experiences in homelessness. Each page contains:
- The Right as quoted in the charter
- A re-wording of the Right in elementary level English
- An illustration by a child 6-12 years old showing their interpretation of the Right based on a conversation held with their parent or guardian about homelessness.

The book concludes with a list of suggestions to take Homeless Rights "Out of the book and into the street" in safe, cost-effective, and impactful ways.

A majority share of the proceeds from book sales will be donated to the Client Action Committee for 'Exercise Your Rights' bursaries to sponsor advocacy initiatives and include the voice of lived experience in the field.

We look forward to celebrating with you!
