The Without a Roof radio program for Wednesday April 19th at 5pm Pacific looks back at five-years of providing a face and voice to poverty, the worst form of violence, with a program entirely centered around Waking the Village, a Sacramento County non-profit serving homeless young adults and their children. It was April, 2012 when I first visited Tubman House to commence a six-week journey of discovery producing Tubman House Magic, a short-film on youth conquering crisis and fulfilling their dreams. Nothing in the five-years since has touched me more deeply, or given me more hope, than Tubman House and Waking the Village.
I'm deeply honored to have Shahera Hyatt, Project Director at the California Homeless Youth Project properly introduce our listening audience to the joy and wonder of Waking the Village. Next is a 7-minute radio edit of Tubman House Magic followed by an interview with is Bridget Alexander Co-founder and Executive Director at Waking the Village. This will be the first time the two of us have spoken since the short-film was published in July, 2012.
