What Must Be Done to Confront Global Homelessness? 

Launching St. Vincent de Paul Heritage Week, faculty, staff, and students are invited to join Daughters and Vincentians for a special luncheon on September 22 discussing the question: “What must be done to confront global homelessness?” How can we better see the problem and advocate for justice? What concrete steps can we take today as we seek a world where everyone has a stake in their community and a place to call home? 

Following opening remarks by Fr. Memo Campuzano, C.M., the panel will feature leading experts from two Vincentian organizations at the forefront of the movement to engage with these questions—FamVin Homeless Alliance and The Ruff Institute of Global Homelessness (RIGH).

  • Mark McGreevy OBE, Group CEO Depaul International and Founder - Ruff Institute of Global Homelessness at DePaul University 
  • Lydia Stazen, Director, Ruff Institute of Global Homelessness
  • Yasmine Cajuste, Project Development Manager for FamVin Homeless Alliance 

A vibrant Q&A will follow the panel. We hope you can join us for this discussion in honor of St. Vincent’s Feast Day as part of the St. Vincent de Paul Heritage Week!
