More Than Housing: Shon’s Equal Voice Story

Equal Voice online newspaper produced More Than Housing: One Person’s Voice, a video featuring CCH leader Shon Robertson and Senior Community Organizer Wayne Richard. Wayne runs Horizons, a creative writing outreach program.

Shon is an activist, spoken word artist, and was once homeless. At the age of 8, Shon became a ward of the state, and at the age of 21, aged out of the system and into homelessness.

Watch Shon’s video on how she survived homelessness and is now a community leader.

This week, Equal Voice will also feature essays by CCH interns J.D. Klippenstein and Anthony Narducci, and Associate Board Treasurer Ryan Cameron, re-posted from our blog.
