Impact Highlight: Speaking Up for Homeless Youth in New York

Happy Hippies believe EVERYONE deserves a safe place to sleep each night. In 2012, homeless youth in New York were turned away from shelters more than 5,000 times because there weren't enough beds, but now is the time for change! 
That's why Miley wrote a letter to New York's leadership and hundreds of Happy Hippies took action to sign an online petition of support. Together with other advocates, our voices helped bring important funding to help homeless youth! New York just passed its state budget, which included $4.5 million to fund new shelter beds for homeless youth. 
And we're just getting started. Stay tuned for more opportunities to use your voice and speak up!
