Wacky Wednesdays: I Am: A Night of Monologues
July 3rd, 2013 by Chris Furino
YES Drop In Center – 2315 N. Charles Street
The Faces of Homelessness Bureau presents I Am: A Night of Monologues. This unique cultural event will feature stories, spoken word poetry, prose, and heartfelt anecdotes about the impact of prejudice on our communities and the power of the human spirit to overcome unimaginable odds. Held at the Youth Empowered Society Drop In Center, a place created for youth between ages 14 and 25 who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of experiencing homelessness, this event promises to be compelling and interesting. These dialogues are told from the perspective of both the person who has experienced or is experiencing homelessness and the local speaker who advocates for the rights of the man or woman experiencing homelessness. This event seeks to challenge us to see beyond conventional stereotypes that pull us apart and to recognize the humanity that lies within every individual, regardless of their situation. There is no fee, per se; however, a donation of $10 is suggested at the door.
RSVP by calling 443-531-1919 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
