A New Perspective (ANP)

“A New Perspective”, ANP, aims to raise awareness regarding the real issues affecting Toronto’s homeless community. It provides a platform through which homeless individuals can share their personal stories and educate the upcoming generation of the countless struggles they face in Toronto, and how we as students, can learn to make a difference. By partnering with local homeless shelters, we will provide students at the University of Toronto the opportunity to dine with homeless residents, and hear their stories. Society assumes it knows what is best for people but consistently fails to take into account the feelings and concerns of the people themselves. ​W e want to raise awareness by setting up an online platform to advocate for the homeless
community by giving them a voice and a place to share their stories and thoughts. We also want to
challenge university students by having them reflect on their experiences, and encourage them to think of
ways in which they can help address the issues raised.
