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 balance from edgen bill. but they're afraid to not be with us because i 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 deaths 93 injuries. and then 15 teenagers killed or injured 3 children 0. so a little bit. we go into these rooms with the sanchez and with these house members, and they'd be surprised because we were these young faces who had experienced come out, stop myself, my friends, i'm bringing them into those rooms. suddenly the senators didn't have the same kind of talking points which they normally had. they couldn't just shout us down with. so i don't know for,
11:31 am
and talk to you or how i'm seeing that 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 that voice as hard because they have an impact. they have a real measurable mm hm. mm mm

11:34 am
me . sure. definitely. connect it, it's the size of the same coin, i think, in order for you to see real change there to it takes building that relationship there, different levels of relationship that they have to occur when you're trying to make make real change. so it's one thing for us to be on the grounds, be grassroots beyond the field, but there's no mandate that's helping us to do those things. so i think having the right people who have those connections, you need that i need you need that folks are getting the folks were actually in the
11:35 am
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 to write laws, to give resources to, to defend funds, to these companies that need it. good afternoon everybody. so before we get started, i know ron noticing how the young people behind me are wearing a red tape across their mouths, the words on it. and just to show that represents either a powerful word quote or a loved one that they lost a gun violence while it while in the fight. c. e o. d kayla dance very was kia may, 15th 2016. she was my friend 22 year y'all. era james was here on april 15th 2019. he was my brother 19 o delmonte janice was killed or september 5th 2018. he was my brother losing down my. it was a breaking point for me. he was

politics across her breasts. she adjusted her head on life in arts and used the bench itself as a bed sized for a queen. i saw a full life living death or dying breath alive in her chest and obey in order a human warning where a body left behind untold obituary. a journal and unrecorded light on a bench with ah,

a traditionally nomadic lifestyle and that tundra is similar to a parallel reality. while the main drive, the hood, women carry the weight of the household work on their shoulders rather than with with however, in the vast expanse of russia, there is a spot where a housewife could secure regular employment status. it's in the final semester with ah, and i make no borders on this line to tease and
11:43 am
you various as a merge, we don't have a therapy. we don't have a vaccine. the whole world leads to take action and be ready. people are judgment, common crisis with 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 challenge is great, the response has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it together with ah, these people learn from their own experience. how vulnerable a business is to the bank, shall you push my business over the age, pushes me right to the bankruptcy. now i realize we will go. this isn't
11:44 am
just the back that may be involved in this is the concept. see, is, is the lawyers, these people have got one of their stories at a walk kind of whistle blower. tell people's marriages have broken up loss for family homes. it is spectacularly devastating for people's lives. they have committed suicide, but left behind north. the explicitly state that it was the constant intimidation and billing by buying call for sauce that late them to i talked to spy obscene. these people up, nor sold with
11:45 am
hey, we're almost there. you remember this? i there to work i love with. so this is where we used to live at the union rescue mission. this is the front door. yeah, 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, south setting, linoleum floors. it looks like a gymnasium,
11:46 am
but we had air mattresses. i slept on the floor for the 1st couple of months. um, 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 the redding. mm mm mm mm ah
11:47 am
i don't me or jackie, are both of us go to adelaide every afternoon about 75 miles 80 miles from our ball park. the longest distance is when we do that in santa monica, that takes at least an hour and 40 point. next to that we do this for 5 nights of the monday through friday. mondays control endow tuesday or wednesday and send them on friday downtown the civic center union station. mm. the we have designed our program is to serve them if they are going to ask them any
11:48 am
questions, don't judge them that somebody bought how they ended up being on the street. it's not god job the judge. ah, nobody likes to be sleeping on the payments that their traffic running down in a totally unsanitary conditions. that's nobody's wish to be that ah ah, 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, only crazy people become homeless and it's easy to say only addicts and drug users
11:49 am
become homeless. 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 unexpected pregnancy away there one job loss away there. 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 a, it's like you're an adult, figure it out. ah, [000:00:00;00]
11:50 am
ah, along 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 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 i do have an immigrant coming from india. it was very,
11:51 am
very hard for me because i've seen power deal bother me here to see these homeless people who are raised here, born here, such a wealthy country of the wealthiest country of the world. and yet, these people are going to trash cans to say why? i am with blue a we have a program clar she and i me,
11:52 am
we basically take food part meals to the homeless. that i would say on a on an average we serve about $150.00 to do 100 park meals a night. we make it a point that we don't have them fall my line. if somebody comes to the truck, fine. those line in my opinion is kind of the human. i think that's not the idea that we started bid. we want to give dignity is the big thing
11:53 am
with us. we are setting up the table and getting this water either way, we need to bolt the wallen piers as well as them receive something. i would like to say that warranty is the see more than what they have been with us again. we might be passing a few bucks worth help, but ito of school, or donations uploading, send it to me. but in the moment here,
11:54 am
what you get is an expedient self compassion. ambition can not be taught, confession can only be expedient or to what value on. that's priceless i was basically faced with that situation where the apartment manager knew i didn't have any way paying immediately. but when i told her i was going to start working and i had family that 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 drama,
11:55 am
and she thought it was better if i just moved out for 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 to, but i had a little bit of money from my aunt. and so i went and booked a hotel room and i need ah, and i was staying in hotel rooms by myself or like i didn't have enough money i would see for my car. and i would try to, ah, like, oh, like i had packed up and put everything into storage, but i didn't really know how he's going to pay the storage bill. like how many gonna pay out, you know,
11:56 am
to keep the kids clothes 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 plasma. i was working on doing online transcription so, 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 got on assistance before. i've, i've 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 kid to sleep. it was like an impossible momentous. i just had no comprehension of how do i get to
11:57 am
a homeless shelter. so that whole process was from may 15th of 2017 and we moved into a domestic violence shelter. it was july 3rd. so all those months were in motel rooms or submitting a car a with

11:59 am
wires, law, harness, things that i had to face was not having a face at a low expectation of life. i accepted that i accept the fact that i made that work . we had no fears. dow change pre fashion, 4 shots, different stories behind the bullets. when i see black america, i see part of my so i was growing young. black americans spoke to me when white astray did not. those who say black marsh magic is a movement we are importing from america. no, nothing of who we are. i lived in a world where wide lives mattered. and i was not wide like missing. and i wasn't known from black america. i learned how to speak back to whitefish aboriginal people of iraq law every day. we are out wanted system. now with the
12:00 pm
police were out war with she states, i'm scared that more children are going to grow up in the country that think says no racism, but they're more likely to end up in the criminal justice system. then there, although fellow friends in daycare the stories that shape the week a march 20 years since the us and allies invaded afghanistan, toppling the taliban regime. and now in the wake of the pentagon, pull out many christians still being asked with violence that continuing to re those ramp and gas prices scaling down just a tad in europe, up to russia. pledge to boost supplies. but the move hasn't stopped us. politicians from blaming moscow for the crisis and austria's leaders,
