Student Activism: Turning Words into Actions
LASC Students Volunteer to Help Feed "People Experiencing Homelessness" at the Union Rescue Mission on Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles
Cesar Chavez Week:Volunteer Day at the Union Rescue Mission
A Message to LASC Students from LASC Graduate and Union Rescue Mission Employee Shelia Young
Thanks so much for taking the time to spend with us and serve our guests. I pray now that many of your students and friends will take action.
It was both mine and Alex's intent to place questions in the heart and mind of those who visited us: Why is volunteering necessary? What can be accomplished by volunteering at the Union Rescue Mission? Who will be affected? And why is it important to brush off preconceived ideas about those experiencing homelessness – everyone has a name and story!
(Editor's Note: See Robyn's story below).
Please encourage all to read You are the Mission and ponder what that means and take action. Help us to remove our precious brothers and sisters from the streets. We look forward to seeing your wonderful faces again!
Shelia Young and Alex Cornejo
