Professor Willie Baronet is hosting the first SMU march to raise awareness about homelessness, gratitude, compassion, and privilege. Join us this Saturday, November 2nd at the Doak Walker Plaza on SMU’s campus to participate in this amazing project.
Check in and register between 8:30 and 9:45 a.m. on Saturday to recieve an authentic homeless sign. The speakers and march will begin at 10 a.m.
Professor Willie Baronet began his project because of the awkwardness he felt when he pulled up to intersections and saw people holding signs and asking for help. Determined to change perceptions of people experiencing homelessness, he began engaging with these individuals and asked them for their signs. Since then, Baronet has touched the lives of thousands and his Home is A Journey event is bringing his efforts to SMU. See you on Saturday!
