Karina Cortez started this petition to Hon. Steve Clark MPP

In Toronto alone over 8,000 people face homelessness everyday. And of those people a staggering 21% are LGBTQ+ youth. Experts believe that number is higher but not all youth participating in the survey are honest for safety reasons. This issue is important because these are kids who for the most part are homeless due to their sexuality or gender. This issue hits them the hardest because they are part of the 'hidden homeless.' Hidden homeless means they do not show up in official figures and are not acknowledged. Little to no action is being taken in regards to this issue so I am creating this petition along with starting a letter writing campaign to Steve Clark. Steve Clark is the MPP responsible for housing and communities which deals with homelessness. I hope that this get enough signatures to actually make change, for too long nothing has been being done to solve this issue. If this petition is successful and the MPP recognizes this as a legitimate issue we can be hopeful for a change in the future.
