** What is the Homelessness Marathon?

Every year, the Homeless Marathon serves up 14 hours of people-powered radio, broadcasted on nearly 40 radio stations across Canada. With the goal of being a consciousness-raising
event, the Marathon will provide an opportunity for homeless people and their allies to take to the airwaves, and allow a nationwide discussion on homelessness issues and possible solutions.

35 stations carrying the marathon from coast to coast to coast! To find the station nearest you broadcasting the marathon, visit:

Some highlights for this year include:
** Open mic hour from midnight-1am (call in with your questions, comments, and rants, or bring an instrument down to the centre and play a song) - 1-866-594-7729
** Other hourly topics and panels on gender and access to housing, police repression and the law, art in the streets, migration and housing, and more!
** Segments of the marathon also being hosted live from the streets of Halifax by CKDU radio, and the streets of Vancouver by CJSF radio!
