MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis churches, mosques and synagogues are joining forces in an effort to end homelessness.

The downtown congregations are holding a joint event Sunday to talk about issues surrounding homelessness in Minneapolis and Hennepin County.

Organizers say the event will help educate the broader community and show people how they can take action to be advocates for the homeless, and help ensure that all people have access to safe, affordable housing.

The event is from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday at Temple Israel. It will feature an interfaith service and a panel discussion. Panelists will include a youth and parent who have been homeless.
