For our latest podcast we interviewed some of the organizers and participants from the Tent City who camped out in front of Baltimore’s City Hall. Many were homeless, some were housing insecure and some were supporters demanding housing for the homeless. They closed the encampment after certain promises were made by the Mayor. So we pick up the conversation exploring why they camped out and what they think the future of their movement will bring.
We examine the issue of homeless youth in Baltimore with: Jeff Singer, Founder and former Executive Director of Health Care for the Homeless;Bonnie Lane, formerly homeless activist, organizer of the Backpack Benefit Concert for Homeless Children, and 2016 Mayoral candidate; and Christian Wilson, Director of Homeless Children’s Weekend Backpack Program.
We speak about 30 Women, 30 Stories: Journeys of Recovery and Transformation, a new book and exhibit about the courageous women of Marian House, a Baltimore institution that has offered rehabilitative services and housing to homeless women and their children for the past 30 years. Joining us are Marian House Executive Director Katie Allston and Marian House alumnae Paris Turner and Trina Seldon. On May 15, 2013 at 5:30 Marian House will host a community dialogue, The Disease of Addiction: Treatment NOT Incarceration, and reception, at the Central Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library.
