HELP US TELL THE STORY OF HOW VIRGINIA ENDED VETERAN HOMELESSNESS - VOTING ENDS FRIDAY AT MIDNIGHT A good friend has submitted a proposed panel - "Can Data End Veteran Homelessness? Ask Virginia" to South by Southwest (SXSW) that would elevate the issue of veteran homelessness and help other states and cities follow in Virginia's footsteps to ending it. The proposal is currently in the running for SXSW 2018. And YOU can help us get it across the finish line! South by Southwest is an innovation-focused cross-sector conference and festival, which USA Today called “one of the largest and most influential gatherings on the planet.” Community votes make up 1/3 of the final score that determines whether this panel gets selected. So if you think this is an important issue, please take two minutes to vote! Voting is open until Friday, August 25. And it is very easy! Could you please help? Step 1: Register with South by Southwest, here (https://auth.sxsw.com/users/sign_up). Step 2: Vote here for "Can Data End Veteran Homelessness? Ask Virginia" (http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/78483) If you voted for a proposal last year, then you are already registered and just need to log in to vote!
