Every day more of our Trinity families and neighbors find their backs up against the wall. Rent is skyrocketing. Thousands are stuck in weekly motels. Homelessness is on the rise. The status quo is literally killing people. While feeding the poor is something we do regularly at Trinity Cathedral, we need to do more to reach the roots of homelessness in our community. Now is the time for people of faith and goodwill to rally around the priorities we have for our own community and build a movement that will fight for upstream solutions to the housing crisis we face.

Tues., Sept. 10, 10:00 AM — Attend Washoe County Commissioners Meeting!
On September 10, the County Commissioners will be voting on whether or not to implement the Supplemental Government Services Tax. This would be a huge step forward for our community and will open the door to significant local investment in affordable housing. Our goal is to fill County Chambers (1001 E 9th St, Reno, NV 89512) with 200+ people, so please plan on attending at 10:00 AM and inviting as many colleagues, family, friends, and members of your faith community as possible. Wear your Trinity nametag, so folks know we are there!
Thurs., Oct. 3, 6:00 PM at Little Flower Catholic Church — Launch of 2020 community platform!
Rather than sitting back and letting candidates, political parties, and other special interests drive the conversation we are inviting people of faith and goodwill to engage voters and candidates in a different and more powerful way. We want to transform the relationships that we have with our elected leaders and set the stage for real solutions to our community’s most pressing challenges. This is why ACTIONN leaders are hosting community conversations with friends, neighbors, and family this summer. They are identifying the values and concerns that our community wants to see lifted up and creating a community platform that will drive our voter and candidate engagement during the 2020 campaign season at the local, state, and national level.
We would love for you to be a part of this work and join us for an exciting kick-off on Thursday, October 3! The event will be held at Little Flower Catholic Church (875 E. Plumb Lane, Reno, NV 89502) and the program will be from 6:00-7:00 PM followed by a casual reception with light refreshments. Wear your Trinity nametag, so folks know we are there!
