Homelessness is a serious national issue complicated by the factor that public perception of such individuals has been skewed by many factors.
As a result, vulnerable human beings have been criminalized, dehumanized and systematically deprived of their dignity and human rights.
FACES is a series of forty intimate portraits of some of our friends and neighbors here in Santa Rosa.
This vibrant collection of images was created by Santa Rosa photographer extraordinaire Salvador "Pocho" Sanchez-Strawbridge. His portraits of dignity in the face of unyielding adversity reflect the humanity of people experiencing homelessness who fully deserve our respect, compassion and dedicated assistance.
You are cordially invited to join us at our opening reception on September 13 at the Glaser Center, Santa Rosa Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 547 Mendocino Ave, from 5-7pm.
Please be part of the solution! We need to raise $5,400 to produce this exhibit and can't do it without your help.
