- How Housing Changed My Life: A rally and storytelling event. Part of the National Housing Week of Action, "Our Homes, Our Voices." In the face of potential devastating cuts to the HUD budget, our members of congress need to hear from real Michiganians who have been aided by programs funded by the federal budget. All people deserve an affordable home, and no one should be forced to give up food or basic healthcare to keep a roof over their heads. We need to call for greater federal investment in affordable homes and community development and show how we, as everyday people who live and work in Michigan, could be impacted by such drastic cuts to the housing budget.

- Michigan Health and Hygiene Donation Drive for the Homeless: Donation drives are not a solution for homelessness but an opportunity to provide aid to people, to raise awareness in our communities, and to combat the stigma associated with it. We were able to collect and distribute over 84,000 health and hygiene items to those at-risk or already experiencing homelessness. THANK YOU for your participation in this initiative and for the work you do on behalf of vulnerable populations of Michigan residents. Our partnership with Support the Girls, corporate donation from LOLA Tampons, and our friendship with Helping Women Period has a profound impact on our process and on our success.
