Tijhiana Thobani started this petition to Hamilton Homeless Shelters and

Marginalized peoples and visible minorities account for a significant percentage of the homeless population in Hamilton, largely including women, single mothers, Aboriginals, racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+ individuals, and immigrants. Advertisements of services for homeless individuals are often Eurocentric, thus excluding those who do not conform to this identity. This can be discouraging to marginalized peoples and creates a exclusive circle. Often, this shapes an environment that welcomes physical, emotional, and verbal violence.

This petition will be used to increase advertisement of services for minority and marginalized peoples, and give recognition to marginalized and racial minority volunteers. It will also be used to fight for gender inclusive advertisements, aside from the use of only 'male' and 'female'. The signature collected will be provided to Homeless Shelters, Soup Kitchens and Transitional housing programs across Hamilton to increase inclusivity of marginalized people and minorities groups. 

Thank you for your support in improving the services offered to homeless and in-need individuals in Hamilton!
