Millennium Fellowship Project: Examining New York City's Homeless Crisis
Rosie is excited to use the Millennium Fellowship to conduct research toward her thesis on New York City's shelter system. Over the course of the Fellowship, Rosie hope to build a strong base of knowledge and connect with individuals and organizations that are already addressing the faults in New York City's shelter system. She will be conducting interviews, analyzing city reports, and volunteering with local organizations that will help her write a report on her research. This report will be publicly shared in order to raise awareness of the faults in New York City's right to shelter policy. This report will be preliminary to her longer, more in depth, senior thesis.
