Health on Earth was a part of the 11th Annual Homelessness Marathon, broadcast live from outside the Native Friendship Center from 5pm February 20th until 7am February 21st. Thirty five stations across Canada broadcast the event. Fourteen hours of awareness-raising, amazing content! Stream any and all the hours of the marathon here!
Each hour focused on a different aspect of homelessness, housing issues, and poverty. From 3am to 4am, Lorraine, Adri and Ilana, hosted and explored how domestic violence affects housing security. An anonymous woman from Logifem was brave enough to share her story of violence and life on the streets. We also spoke with Marlo Turner Ritchie of L'abri en Ville about the transitional housing program. Two workers from Vancouver Rape Relief and Women's Shelter , Britney and Maria, shared their experiences working with women who are victims of domestic violence. Edith from West Island Women's Shelter talked about women who got off the streets after experiencing violence and street life. The work of all these organizations is inspiring- optimism dominates in a field where it is easy to lose hope.
Listen to Hour 11 here:
