"Thank you for looking me in the eye and talking to me." The words of Eric a homeless man who had fallen off his bike and I pulled over to help early this evening. We chatted for about 30 minutes and at the end he said, " People forget we are human, they think we just want handouts. Sometimes we just need to be seen, thank.you."

We do this through protests, phone calls, letters, and more. We will not be silent!
We support the following issues:.

Clearly, a silver lining to this nightmare is that marginalized people who have needed more support all along are now getting it.
If I may,

Because of you I'm experiencing a rebirth of my spirit and my voice.
