in i i guess my father big brother, i'm the figure that bags of voice that they might not be getting in between like the reaches and the adult. that's a lot of a lot of my time, but again, whether it's taking them to go e going to play basketball, they come to my house, they play games and they also as a keep them and you know, bring them together around issues them in their community.
definitely connected to side of the same coin, i think in order for you to see a real change there to it takes build and that relationship there different levels of relationship that that has to occur when you're trying to make, make real change. so it's one thing for us to be on the grounds, the grassroots beyond the field. but there is no mandate that's helping us to do those things. so i think having the right people who have those connections, you need that any you need that folks are getting the folks were actually in the field who are living this on everyday basis, trying to make a difference. and the folks who are able to reach those and the power to have the power so right law to, to give resources to send funds to the community that needed. good afternoon
everybody. so before we get started, i know ron noticing how the young people behind you are wearing red tape across them out of words on it. and just to show that represents either a power for word quote or a love one that they lost the gun violence while it, while in the fight. cod kayla dan very was kim main. 152015. she was my friend 24 year old edwards. james was killed on april 15th, 2019. he was my brother. 902 johns. it was september 5th 2018. it was my brother losing the months. it was a breaking point for me. he was a young person. we lost in my city. i didn't know how to move forward, but the young people are resilient. they knew he was someone who wanted to make a difference. and they didn't lead said death going vain. me.
yeah, i really miss my baby. so he's here with me. i guess she me. yeah, yeah. get him to mentally prepare, mom mentally. really prepare myself because, you know, i still see in like i hear you sir. look, things you know, sit up and wait on them. you know, that can my mind, you know, i can hear them a window called me so you have to deal with are being the memory. well i just say still here with me is happy, strongly get to the day because i could come and sit down and talk to me. maybe not feasible for me. i always say mama will make you happy
reset. this bench is somewhere on the eastern seaboard of the united states of america. it's a french, i walk by every day and era until one day i tune and i have the most beautiful, bold and poetry had ever heard of my life. that's right, that's today. october 7th, 2019. i saw the wall street journal on a bench left behind by an investment banker at night, a woman experiencing homelessness. used the news as a pillow and a blanket. she spread the business tech sections across her leg, politics across her breast. she adjusted her head on life in art and use the bench itself as a bed sized for a queen. i saw a full life living death,
right there. whereas the rescue mission that no san piedro and 6 here. ready. we're going to come up on the back of it right now. can you see our room? count the floor, count 1234. we're on the 4th floor. which one do you think is our room? over there? long. when i would chose the wrong one, i'll just don't the room. yes. to see out the thing because the after an engagement equals the trail, when so many find themselves well,
depart. we choose to look for common ground. i don't think they can't ride on police report on december 2020 a group of anti finishes. fill out a film crew access for 3 months. there's no like if people organization, it's an idea that must be opposed to the game they make their faces. but they can say what they believe and we believe in helping our community. we believe that fascism is one of the major threats to the united states has gotten driven. this is a chance to see who and teeth are really are. in order for me. my 1st amendment right and say that my life matter, i have to be onto the teachers that we can't trust the police. we can't trust the government. we can't trust anyone except or so to protect ourselves in
use the the the hey, we're almost there. you're remember this either we're hello. are you so this is where we used to live at the union rescue mission. this is the front door. you know, we stayed here a month at 1st. there were so many families, women, and children here that we stayed in the day room, which is basically like
a large dining room, large cafeteria, sal, setting linoleum floors. it looks like a gymnasium. we had an air mattress. it flopped on the floor for the 1st couple of months. so from september until december and then in december we were place into a room. and because my daughter was with me and not my son was just me and one child, i was sharing a room with 4 other mothers who all had one child with them at the time. be ready. i
in. ah ah, either me or jackie or, or go to and they every afternoon in about 75 miles 80 miles from our home. but the longest distance is when we do that in the morning, that takes at least an hour and 40 like next we do this 5 nights will be monday through friday in monday and tuesday, wednesday and santa monica friday in downtown,
the civic center union station and i believe we have designed our program is to serve them via them and they are, don't ask them any, don't judge. that's how they ended up being on the street. it's not god job the judge. ah, nobody likes to be looping on the payments their traffic running around in a totally unsanitary condition that nobody's less to be that. ah, i, there's a 1000000 reasons why people become homeless. it's not always mental illness and it's not always drug addiction. yes, those are 2. i think those are 2 reasons that have
a really negative connotation. so it's easy to say, oh, only crazy people become homeless and it's easy to say only addict and drug users become home. that's never going to happen to me and my family, but the truth is in the united states, most people are a paycheck or 2 away. they're. they're one unpaid credit card away. you know they're one payday loan away. they're one on expected pregnancy away there. one job loss away. there's so many reasons why you could end up homeless and unable to pay your bills and unable to keep a roof over your head and your families had lots of people leave the foster care system and have nowhere to go. you turn 18 years old and you are out. that's it. you go from having no parents and just a foster family to being on the street. all the sudden you're 18, it's like you're an adult. figure it out.
i i, when you're living on the street, when you are an on shelter person, when you have nowhere else to go and you have nothing to look forward to. i really think that i can understand how easy it must be to slip into drug use. and then fall into addiction, because if you've just got nothing else good going on in your day and you need something to make you feel good. i can't imagine that there's you know, i can't imagine that much else is going to make you feel good at that point when you hit rock bottom. like it is what it is. i don't know. so
ah, we have a program last year and we basically take food, part meals for the homeless, wherever they are. i i on an average, we sell about 150 to 200 park meal the night we make it a point that we don't have them farm on line. if somebody comes to their truck, fine line in my opinion is kind of be human. i think that that's not the idea that we started that we wanted to get big maybe is the big
a few books worth of food or donation the closing sanitary. but in a moment here, what you get is an expedient self compassion impression and our confession can only be expedient. i don't work on that. that price. i was basically faced with that situation where the apartment manager knew i didn't have any way of paying immediately. but when i told her i was going to start working and i had family and it would cover the rent until then it didn't matter to her. she said that she knew i was going to go back to him that she'd seen it happen hundreds of times before where women claim that they're being abused, and then they run right back to the man that they're alleging abuse against. and
she didn't want to deal with that trauma and she thought it was better for ah, the manager gave me a deadline to leave before she filed the eviction paperwork. and so i left because i knew it was just gonna be that much harder to find an apartment. if i had an eviction on my record. but the day that i left the apartment, i really, i did not have anywhere today. i had a little bit of money from my aunt and so i went and booked a hotel room as frank and i was staying in hotel rooms by myself or like, i didn't have enough money. i would sleep in my car and i would try to like i like i had packed up and put everything into storage,
but i didn't really know how to pay the storage bill. how am i going to pay you know, to keep the kids and their toys and things like that. and so i started selling things out of the storage unit to keep the storage unit and then going and selling blood i was working, doing online transcription. so that was piece rate, it was very, very small sums of money. i might work all day and make you know, $15.00. i had never been on welfare before. i had never been on assistance before. i had unemployment when i lost jobs in the past, but i had never gotten food stamps. i had never gotten any and to go from having had a job since i was 13 years old to being in a motel wondering how i'm going to get $40.00 to find somewhere for me and my kids to sleep. it was like an impossible momentous. i just had no comprehension of how do i get to
a homeless shelter. so that whole process was from may 15th, 2017. and when we moved into domestic violence, shelter was july 3rd. so all those months were in motel rooms or so i ah to don't do the notion of a toy knew he would say it was she who gets home later to love me as she knew she wouldn't be
a little girl. but what i was studying for me to teach julia category she was, she's a really pushing issue one. your new best for me was over. she said for meeting last week with metro. okay . she yeah, she felt i love this deal and that is what i need from the new new new which is about what if the new i see executable football. what's the point up when i got to pull it up on that? got me
. ah, well, what we've been reporting on for a few years, money printing leads to inflation. this is about becoming a big problem for central banks around the world. only one central bank on the world is actually taking it on board and proactively dealing with the issue. we'll get to that mom and ah, today industry prefers millions of euros in the regulations. i will be thinking about making money. i think it's about the corporation international markets export. do you imagine the number of the diseases are in every family today? it's, you know, due to new viruses or new microbes, it's not true. so it is due to environment. they're not going to take either the momentum that much. hello. yes,
thank you. let me come in today. mostly they don't allow us. the food industry is successful for create more jobs. it will create more value added. it will create more so i don't see why we shouldn't also fight for the interest of the entity that we have regulation. we want the regulation industry and if we don't have any specialty, that's fine. what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy foundation, let it be an arms race is often very dramatic. development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very political time. time to sit down and talk pairing and found introducing and found to to a family when
a new mother is going through that process. yeah, there's certainly tremendous cause for great joy, but because it's in a bad that causes so many different changes. it's stressful at many levels. oh, is your media a reflection of re the the in a world transformed what will make you feel safe for tyson lation community? are you going the right way or are you being direct? what is true? what is faith? in the world corrupted, you need to defend the join us in the depths
