Projects of Survival
“Projects of survival” are more than a handout to people in need—they are a way of regularly gathering struggling people together to meet immediate needs, as well as to build relationships and strategize and organize around issues of injustice.
At Chaplains on the Harbor, we know that the people with the greatest insights and leadership to offer on poverty, homelessness, and incarceration are the people who have lived through those things themselves. Projects of survival are a way of gathering those directly impacted leaders together.
Inside a Homeless Encampment
On May 1, 2018, Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II and Researchers from the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, were invited by Chaplains on the Harbor to visit a homeless encampment in Aberdeen, Washington.
