Event/Date: Workshop series on homelessness; August 14, 21, 28 from 5:30 – 7pm in Neill Public Library’s Hecht Meeting Room

Neill Public Library is pleased to partner with Nancy Carvajal Medina of the Mestizo Center of WSU’s College of Education to host three interactive workshops about the homeless experience in our community.

Titled “My Story is the Only Thing I Own:  Houseless testimonios (testimonies) of Resilience and Survival”, this program series will bring together common assumptions, values, and cultural heritages from non-homeless worlds into perspective with those who have experienced homelessness. 

Participants will hear stories of the homeless, share insights and knowledge, use artistic mediums to respond to program content, and discuss actions the community can take to provide a stronger network of support.  Each workshop is different; participants may attend one or all sessions.  Hearty refreshments will be served.
