I love spoken word’s power in calling for social change. Check out this new video from Shane Koyczan on homelessness:
Here’s what I’m thinking about:
At the beginning of the poem, Koyczan calls out our disdain for the places we have. Do you have the attitude he shared to school/work? Explain.
What’s your gut response when you see a person who is homeless?
How can we create places for those struggling with homelessness?
What are some of the ways Koyczan cites as causes of homelessness?
Koyczan expresses that “Diversion has taken the place of focus.” Do you see this as being true in yourself? in others? How should we respond to this pull?
