  • Cafeteria Annex, Goins Administration Building, Pellissippi State Community College

Mr. Eddie Young, Executive Director of the East Tennessee Peace and Justice Center, will present a talk titled “The Criminalization of the Homeless”. The Center’s work is focused on organizing, training and mobilizing (collectivizing) the homeless in the pursuit of peace through social justice.

By the end of 2016 the Center was facilitating the Knoxville Homeless Collective, the Knox County Incarceration Collective and was preparing to launch the Knoxville Tenants Rights Collective. This presentation will emphasize two facets of these efforts: (1) Reorganizing the Knoxville Homeless Collective, with primary interests in exposing the Knoxville Area Rescue Mission and passing a proposed Knoxville “Homeless Bill of Rights”, and (2) restarting publication of The Amplifier, a newspaper that addresses the problems of homelessness.
