Wanted College Students in Philadelphia Studying Human Services, Psychology and Sociology
Are you intrigued by the study of humans, society, culture, community, physical and mental health? Join author Versandra Kennebrew August 3, 2011 at Moonstone Arts Center located at 110A South 13th Street, Philadelphia, PA from 7p – 9p.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, author and homeless advocate Versandra Kennebrew is coming to Philadelphia August 3, 2011 and she wants to meet you. Come and join us at Robin’s Books and Moonstone Arts Center located at 110A South 13th Street, Philadelphia, PA from 7p – 9p. During her homeless awareness and sensitivity college tour, Kennebrew will share her story of transformation from homelessness to self-sufficiency in an inspirational monologue based on her memoir, “Thank God for the Shelter.” She will also discriminate information and resources with college students who would most likely serve the homeless populations in their community and in their upcoming professions.
The goal is to engage college students in Detroit, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dayton, Atlanta, Harlem, Washington DC, Dallas and Birmingham as they study in their perspective fields to become the change they want to see in the world. Our future leaders must think outside the box to fight against poverty, lack of education and poor health which can lead to homelessness. It’s time out for pointing fingers, it’s time fight. Our weapon of choice is the most powerful of all. Our weapon will be love.
Space is limited for this community event co-sponsored by Moonstone Arts Center. To pre-order a copy of “Thank God for the Shelter: Memoirs of a homeless healer” or to find out how you can watch the presentation via live feed from your computer, smart phone or tablet, contact Moonstone Arts Center at 215-735-9600 or visit www.moonstoneartscenter.org.
