Drawn To Home: Social Justice Reading Club Discussion

Gumberg's November 2022 Social Justice Reading Club reading selection is Drawn to Home. Our discussion will feature guests from Northside Common Ministries, an artist from the project and more. Drawn to Home is focused on the national shortage of affordable housing and the crisis of homelessness facing many of our major cities. Art has a unique power to open up dialogue that can energize people to take action and to make their voices heard to support others who struggle with housing instability. The Gumberg Library is also hosting an exhibit in memory of the project’s founder, Jay Poliziani, who described his vision to open the dialogue about homelessness on a wider level saying: “We have seen that people are open to conversations about tough topics like homelessness when presented in a non-confrontational or judgmental way. When people can start the conversation organically around a work of art, they feel at ease. Change can only come if conversations feel comfortable.”
