We’re wrapping up workshop #1 and headed into workshop #2 before tonight’s reception at the National Conference on Ending Homelessness.
Everyone I meet is eager and energized and so filled with altruism and resolve – especially after Nan’s keynote remarks this morning. But what’s really exciting for me is the energy online! Advocates are tweeting up a storm about ideas they’re learning about in workshops, responses to speaker presentations, and connecting both on and offline.
Here’s a smattering of tweets from just this morning! If this online conversation appeals to you, follow us using the #naeh hashtag. (The Alliance’s handle is @naehomessless; you can find us at http://www.twitter.com/naehomelessness.)
