As part of Real Change’s advocacy efforts, we are inviting community members to join Real Change vendors, volunteers, and staff, along with people who are currently homeless, to participate in Listening Circles to hear each others’ experiences with economic insecurity and access to resources. This is an opportunity to actively listen to stories about what it takes to “get by” in Seattle from people who are both housed and unhoused.
Sessions: 10AM, 12PM, and 2PM (60-90 minutes each)
Location: Real Change Vendor Center: 96 S. Main St., Pioneer Square
Vendor Buddy McArdle describes homelessness
“I have a degree in IT and I can’t even get a backup job.”
Listening circles are an organizing tool – for Real Change, they serve as a cross-class engagement strategy. When people share their experiences, they can relate to each other and become part of a movement. Our goal is to bring the voices of the people experiencing economic insecurity and homelessness to the forefront of the 2 remaining years of King County’s 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness.
Join us for this dialogue between homeless people and their allies for economic justice, and learn about our common interest in taking action by attending a Listening Circle session.
To participate in a Listening Circle, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Jenn Pearson, Volunteer Manager, at 206.441.3247 ext. 212.
