Sleep Out/Speak Out

Stand in Solidarity With Our Homeless Neighbors

Sleep Out/Speak Out
Date TBD (originally scheduled for Friday, May 1, 2020)
Rhatigan Student Center Courtyard, Wichita State University


Spend a night under the stars to raise awareness and much-needed funds to tackle homelessness in Wichita. Sleep Out/Speak Out is not about pretending to be homeless; it’s an act of solidarity—to give you a tiny insight into this reality, and raise the funds and awareness needed to help those who have no other choice.


Sleep out so others don’t have to, then speak out about this important issue in our community!


$20 ticket + $20 fundraising minimum


UPDATE 3/16/2020: In light of the CDC’s warnings against gatherings of 50 or more people, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming Sleep Out/Speak Out fundraising event. We hate to do this, as the event raises critical funds vital to continuing operations and covering the extra costs of associated with caring for our clients during this time, but your safety remains our top priority.


If you haven’t already, we hope you will still consider signing up for the event—as an event attendee or virtual participant—and use this extra time to raise much-needed funds and awareness to support our homeless neighbors. We will announce a new date as soon as one is determined.
