Take a deep dive into homelessness in America with an exclusive screening of the "Invisible Class," followed by a panel discussion with Director, Josh Hayes, and Senior Director of Innovation at DST, Romie Nottage.
"The Invisible Class" explores what it truly means to be homeless in America, challenging stereotypes and examining the systemic causes of mass homelessness in the wealthiest nation in the world. From coast to coast, the film is a day in the life of homelessness across America.
Join Downtown Streets Team & "The Invisible Class" Director Josh Hayes for an evening of education and conversation about homelessness in the United States. The exclusive screening of "The Invisible Class" will be followed by a panel discussion where participants will have a chance to ask Josh and Romie Nottage, Senior Director of Innovation at DST, questions about the movie and the crisis of homelessness. You'll learn about the trauma homelessness causes, the everlasting impact of the experience of homelessness, and what we can do to help end it.
American documentary films on homelessness have previously tended to focus on small subsections of people. While this is definitely an important aspect of contemporary homelessness, it's also only a sliver of the overall situation of an ongoing machine that creates and perpetuates mass homelessness and has for 40 years. The "Invisible Class" aims to uncover aspects of the homelessness crisis not yet covered in the storytelling around the issue.
