Can you imagine the physical and mental realities of living on the streets? Brendan Phillips, musician and social worker, tells us why we're losing the battle against homelessness and how the answer lies in making housing a human right. Addressing homelessness is a complex issue. Advocacy goes far beyond offering compassion and empathy. Brendan Phillips, son of Co-Founder of Utah's place (Utah Phillips), works in our community at the crossroads of homelessness, mental health, and criminal justice.
About the project:
These stories "caught" by StoryCatchers, Betty Louise and Susan M. Davis, inspire inclusion and common humanity with homeless people and promote compassionate action with the community at large. Stories connect us to our humanity. The Humanities, Arts, and Media communicate Story. The result is cultural transformation.This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a partner of the NEH. Visit www.calhum.org.
