Challenger Street Newspaper Fundraiser & Film Screening: Bouldin Creek Greenbelt Family
Mar 11, 2015

The Challenger Street Newspaper invites you to watch the documentary "Bouldin Creek Greenbelt Family" and speak with members of street organizations, the Challenger Newspaper and Tent City, about the realities of homelessness in Austin today. "Bouldin Creek Greenbelt Family" chronicles the life and eviction of "Camp One" in Austin in 1995. The documentary was shot by a resident of the camp and orginally aired on the Austin access show "Dialogues About Homelessness" We're asking 5-10$ sliding scale, though no one will be turned away. The Challenger Street Newspaper is a 4 year old organization of homeless artists, street reporters, poets and distributors in Austin. Our mission is to empower people in need with economic opportunity and have their viewpoints heard. This paper uplifts and gives information to our most under-represented people. It encourages responsibility and freedoms necessary to enhance our everyday life. The people we serve have a wealth of information to share with society. The paper contributes, informs, and connects diverse people from all walks of life. The challenge is to end poverty. Monkeywrench Books is right off the number 7 bus.
