my team world leaves to take action and be ready. not a joke. people are judge governors crisis, we can do better, we should be better. everyone is contributing each in their own way. but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenges to response has been massive, so many good people are helping us. it makes it feel very proud that we need together now join me every thursday on the alex simon show, and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politics sport. business. i'm show business, i'll see you then. me.
5:31 am
ah, the unique thing about large for our lives 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 meeting for 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 to not offended. we go into the rooms with the stances and with these house numbers, and they'd be surprised because we were these young faces who had experience come out. it's not myself, my friends, on bring them into those rooms. suddenly the senators didn't have the same kind of
5:32 am
talking points which they normally had. they couldn't just houses down to meet you in amelia. so i don't know foreign talk to our team and seeing that young people can really affect that room just showed me that across issues across spaces, across the nation. we need young people to be able to stand up and actually make their voice as hard because they have an impact and they have a real, measurable, and we are really
5:33 am
in. um i i i guess like the uh the father big brother on the, on that figure that bags to voice that they might not be getting in between like living reaches and the end of the

5:35 am
in education. agitation are taking me ah, in. i definitely connected to side of the same coin, i think in order for you to see real change there to takes build and that relationship, there are 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
5:36 am
right people who have those connections, you need that. and if you need that folks again, you mean folks were actually in, in the field who are living on every day trying to make a difference. and the folks who are able to reach those and the power to have the problem. so right law to, to give resources to send files to these committees 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 represent 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 years old era. james was killed on april 15th, 2019. he was my brother. 90. 2 johns was curos

5:40 am
me. this bench is one of thousands and thousands of benches over a thousands and thousands of years. some bench has fallen, locks or legends of slate, or edges straight from manufacturers of all kinds. where people come to convene. couple, remember, forget to settle, rest, reset. this bench is somewhere on the eastern seaboard of the united states of america. it was by every day and era until one day. i mean 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,
5:41 am
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 the full lights living death 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]
5:42 am
ah, i see the map you see where we are 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?
5:43 am
ah oh. and now we're in an area where we're trying to face the planet. we want to be able to use energy and have special live, but also to live on a healthy planet. and the challenge is energy. it's the emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases that we're trying to manage. and there's many different ways of doing that. the transitions have begun in transition and it's proceeding along many different ways with ah, today industry refers to millions of euros in our being to get a regulation business about making money. it's about a big corporation. international markets import export. do you imagine the number
5:44 am
of the diseases are in every family it's you know, due to new viruses or new microbes, not true. so it is due to an environment like that not going to take either the momentum much yes, accumulate going on the come in today. mostly they don't allow us, the food industry will 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 something into that we have regulation. we want the regulation of the industry and if we don't have video penalties, that's fine. ah
5:45 am
the hey, we're almost there. you remember this? i there 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, sal setting linoleum, or it looks like
5:46 am
a gymnasium. if we had an air mattress it slept 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 be ready . i am in
5:47 am
awe either me or jackie or or 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 in the morning, that takes an hour and 45 minutes to do that. we do this 5 nights of the monday through friday in monday, and tuesday or wednesday. and that is. and then the monica friday, downtown,
5:48 am
a civic center union station in, ah, the, we have designed, our program is conserved 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 sleeping on the payments, the traffic running around in a perfectly unsanitary condition that nobody's less to be that. ah i, there is 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,
5:49 am
only crazy people become homeless and it's easy to say only attic and drug users become home. 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 there 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 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 families to being on the street. all the sudden you're 18, it's like you're an adult. figure it out. i .
5:50 am
i, when you're living on the street, when you are an unhealthy 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. okay. me. and they knew me coming from india. it was very,
5:51 am
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 such about the country of the world, the wealthiest country of the world. and yet these people are going through trash cans wise. ah ah, we have
5:52 am
a program. we basically take food, part meals of the homeless, wherever they are. a doll i ah ah, on an average we sell about $150.00 to $200.00 park new the night. we make it a point that we don't have them fall my line if somebody comes to the truck, fine line in my opinion is kind of a human. i think that's not the idea that we started with. we wanted to get big
5:53 am
maybe is the big thing with us in the fall or sitting on the table and getting the water out of the way we need to both the wall and peers as well as something i would like to say that warranty is that it's the more than what they are giving you call your dance, we might be passing on a few bucks worth of food donations uploading it to the end as what you get is an expedient,
5:54 am
self compassion and fashion and not be taught. compassion can only be expedient. i put a work value on 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. 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 if i just i,
5:55 am
the manager gave me a deadline to leave before she filed the eviction paperwork. 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 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 coming in and pay you know,
5:56 am
to keep in their ways 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 end 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
5:57 am
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 the i is your media a reflection of reality in a world transformed what will make you feel safe for the tycer lation whole community? are you going the right way or are you being that somewhere direct? what is true? what is faith? in the world corrupted. you need to defend the join us
5:58 am
in the depths, the will remain in the shallows. ah, what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy foundation. let it be an arms race is on, 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 to me the to don't to leave, you know say over 20 new he would say it was she who it's ready to love

6:00 am
