Join us for the screening of Skid Row Marathon an award-winning documentary! Skid Row Marathon is about a judge who organizes a running club comprised of homeless, recovering alcoholic and paroled men and women on LA’s Skid Row who seek to rediscover their sense of self-worth and dignity. The feature includes an exclusive “Where Are They Now” segment.
Join us for a film screening and panel discussion of The Advocates at California State University, Northridge. The event is free and open to the community. Learn about the crisis of homelessness in LA and how you can help through an intimate lens into the tireless work of homeless advocates. There will be a reception at 6 p.m. with light refreshments. The film screening takes place from 6:30 to 8 p.m., followed by a panel discussion featuring an Everyone In organizer, Kris Freed (Chief Program Officer, LA Family Housing), Angel Quintanilla (Housing Specialist, County Department of Mental Health), Rémi Kessler (Director, “The Advocates”), and Rudy Salinas (Chief Program Officer, The Center at Blessed Sacrament). All are invited and RSVPs are required.
This screening is the by-product of a partnership between The Advocates Director Remi Kessler and United Way LA’s Everyone in Campaign. The film is now being screened throughout LA County through August 2019.
This heat is brutal. There are many ways we can show up for those experiencing homelessness, like offering water and being thoughtful to those seeking shade and cool places to stay. But we also need to show up to support real, long-term solutions. Participate in one of our events this week and next. We have multiple trainings happening throughout L.A. County, there is a screening of the film The Advocates, and a huge opportunity to speak up for your unhoused neighbors at the Candidate Forum we'll be hosting on August 1st.
