ah, the unique thing about my life is that the adults are afraid of us. quite frankly. members of congress are very afraid of us, and that's something we know and we definitely use to our advantage. we're able to get meetings with people who quite literally will never vote in favor of any gun violence prevention bill. but they're afraid to not be with us because we don't want to see what would happen if we were to call them out for not taking our meeting, but a $187.00 total instances. 38 death 93 injuries. and then 15 teenagers killed or injured 3 children 0 through the we go entities and rooms with the stances and with the house members. and they'd be surprised because we were these young faces who had experienced gum. that's not myself. my friends,

9:38 pm
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. and if you need to get any folks were actually in, 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 and fines to the community that needed. i good afternoon everybody. so before we get started, i know ron noticing how the young people behind you. i went to red tape across the amount of words on it. and just to show that represents either a power for word quote or a love when that they lost the gun violence while it, while in the fight. cod kayla dan very was q may 15th 2015. she was my friend 24 year old edwards. james was killed on april 15th, 2019. he was my brother. 90. 2 johns was curious,

me. this bench is one of thousands and thousands of benches over the thousands and thousands of years. some bench has fallen lots or ledges of slate or edges straight from manufacturers of all kinds. where people come to convene, remember, forget to resist, settle, rest, reset. this bench is somewhere on the eastern seaboard of the united states of america. it's a finish. i walk by every day and i hear our one day. i mean i have the most beautiful, bold and poetry has ever heard of my life. that's right. that's today. october 7th, 2019. i saw the wall street journal on
9:43 pm
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 arts and use the bench itself as a bed sized for a queen. i saw a full life living dead or dying breath live in the chest with an obese in orbit. a human warning where a body left behind an untold obituary, a journal, and unrecorded life on a bench i use, [000:00:00;00]
9:44 pm

9:46 pm

9:47 pm
hi there. hello. are you so this is where we used to live at the union rescue mission. this is the front door. we stayed here 8 months. 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 style, setting linoleum floors. it looks like a gymnasium, but we had an air mattress in flapped on the floor for the 1st couple of months. so from september until december, and then in december we were placed 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. i, me,
9:48 pm
i in awe either me or jackie or both. go to and they, every afternoon i this is about 75 miles 80 miles from our home. but the longest distance is when we do that
9:49 pm
in the morning that takes at least an hour and 40 place next to there. we do this 5 nights of the monday through friday in monday and tuesday, wednesday. and that is and send them on friday again downtown the civic center union station. and i believe we have designed our program is concert and they are don't ask them any, don't judge them. 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 that their traffic running around in a totally unsanitary conditions that nobody's less to be that.
9:50 pm
ah, i, there's a 1000000 reasons why people become homeless. it's not 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, only crazy people become homeless and it's easy to say only addict and drug users become homeless. that's never going to happen to me in 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. they're one job loss away. there are so many reasons why you could end up homeless and unable to pay your bills and unable to keep
9:51 pm
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 a team, it's like you're an adult, figure it out. i i, when you're living on the street, when you are an unselfish 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 you. and just then fall into addiction, because if you've just got nothing else good going on in your day and you need
9:52 pm
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 me and then immigrant coming from india, it was very, very hard for me because i've seen power deal. it bothered me here to see the homeless people who are raised here on here the country of the world, the wealthiest country of the world. and yet these people are going through the trash cans wise.
9:53 pm
ah ah, we have a program last year and we basically take food part meals of the homeless that they are paid off my eye
9:54 pm
on an average we sell about $150.00 to $200.00 park meal the night we make it a point that we don't have them fall my line if somebody comes to their truck, fine line in my opinion is kind of and i think that's not the idea that we started bit we wanted to get big. libby is the big thing with the father sitting at the table and getting the water out of the way. we need
9:55 pm
both the wall and peers as well as that. it is something i would like to say that warranty is the more than what they are giving up with an app collier and we might be passing on a few bucks worth of, but all of our donations uploading it to the index as a moment here. what you get is an expedient self compassion impression and i'd be taught confession can only be expedient. i don't work on that. that's priceless. 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
9:56 pm
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 realm of their alleging abuse against. and she didn't want to deal with that trauma and she thought it was better if i just use the manager gave me a deadline to leave before she filed the eviction people were. and so i left because i knew it was just going to 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 to that. i had a little bit of money from my aunt and so i went and booked
9:57 pm
a hotel room as frank and i was staying in hotel rooms by myself or like, i didn't have the money, i would be for 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 can i pay the storage bill, accounting and pay you know, to keep the kids in 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.
9:58 pm
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 should be in the car. i use the
9:59 pm
the the, the, the the, the everything we associate with modern life has been digitalized. in fact, we live within ecosystems created by big tech. they decide what we can see, what we can buy, and even what we can say. the systems no longer serve us, they actually control us. is there a way out from this growing dystopian?
10:00 pm
the the mass rallies and statues toppled. canadians spent their anger after the remains of more than a 1000 children are discovered of former indigenous residential schools run by the catholic church in an outburst against so called a woke culture. president micron warned that progressive american ideas are radicalized and friends and microsoft admit that u. s. law enforcement has secretly been requesting the data of its customers up to 10 times a day. i
