Women Surviving Homelessness
This two-part program covers the moving book release event for "No Room of Her Own: Women's Stories of Homelessness, Life, Death and Resistance." Speakers include the book's author, Desiree Hellegers, associate professor of English and a founding
co-director of the Center for Social and Environmental Justice at Washington State University Vancouver, and six narrator-activists whose stories are featured in the book.
The narrators Arnette Adams, Anitra Freeman, Debra Martinson, Jessie Pedro and Delores Loann Winston, all formerly homeless, are involved in various efforts for social change in Seattle. For example, Seattle's Women in Black has stood vigil for more than four hundred people who have died
homeless in one of the most "livable" cities in the United States. The women read from the book at the April, 2012 event held at the St. Francis Dining Hall in Portland, coordinated by the Center for Social and Environmental Justice.
