2015 Homelessness Marathon


The 2015 Homelessness Marathon takes place Wednesday February 25 from 2PM MST to Thursday February 26 at 5AM MST and airs across Canada. Hosted by CRFC 101.9FM in Kingston, 14 community and campus radio stations will produce 15 straight hours of programming all tackling homelessness issues.

For all you night owls, Edmonton’s CJSR is contributing stories from 1-2AM MST. The hour focuses on two major issues – the impact of gentrification in the downtown area on the inner-city community, and Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women in Edmonton and the rest of Canada. It will include interviews with the University of Alberta’s Jay Scherer, MacEwan University’s Michael MacDonald, as well as cultural support worker Gary Moostoos, and a number of inner-city community members.

Locally, you can tune into 88.5FM, and globally online at http://cjsr.streamon.fm/!
