The reason I've chosen to be part of this event is because I believe as a city that keeps growing we become even more distant from each other. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. I feel very lucky to call Katelyn Roberts my friend and we have had many conversations in what changes we need to see in this city. Sanctum is a refuge for its tenants and the first place most of these people have ever called home.
I want to gain a better understanding of the challenges and complexities of those who have not been given the same privileges in life as I have. I recognize that this is only 36hrs and it could never accurately depict the many barriers and complex issues faced by persons who must survive daily in poverty. However, I do believe that by participating in this event I will help raise awareness to some of the many challenges faced by this population which I hope will be a catalyst for change in this community.
