COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT: Don’t miss Carey Fuller on Huffington Post LIVE, TOMORROW 9/12/12 at 12pm ET/9am PST at http://live.huffingtonpost.com/.
We can’t share at this time what she’ll be speaking about tomorrow, but here is what we do know:
* Carey Fuller spoke to Huffington Post LIVE in late August about her personal experience with poverty and her work serving homeless folks in her area near Seattle, WA. Click here to watch and jump to about 10 minutes in (she has technical difficulties before that). Carey dispels a few myths that continue to persist about the homeless.
On tomorrow’s episode of Huffington Post Live, Carey will be joined by Tavis Smiley and Cornel West. Smiley and West will also host a town hall on poverty at Delaware State University at 8 p.m. this coming Thursday on their “Poverty Tour 2.0.”
* We announced last week on Facebook that Carey is partnering with POC Zine Project on a zine series by and for folks living at or below the poverty line, for the purposes of sharing practical knowledge and community building. We will work with printing and distribution partners to share this zine with folks who need it.
Here is some info from Carey’s bio:
I am a single mother of two and proud of it. I lived out of a Minnie Winnebago for about 6 years and had to get a mini-van instead. While looking for “real work”, I am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in health services administration. I stand by the causes I believe in regardless of the indifference around me. I may not tell you what you want to hear, but I will tell you what you need to listen to.
If you are interested in collaborating with POC Zine Project and Carey Fuller on this zine series for homeless folks and those living at or below the poverty line, send us a message. The first issue will be released in Winter of 2012. We’ll do a couple more announcements about this after the tour. <3
