The 2016 Homelessness Marathon


Tune in to the 2016 Homelessness Marathon today from 3PM to 5AM MST! Every year, stations in cities across Canada take turns sharing local homelessness issues for the rest of the country to hear. Edmonton’s CJSR 88.5FM will be broadcasting the entire marathon, with our local stories running from 11:30PM-1AM MST.

So if you’re a night owl, you’ll hear about how the Highlands community is ensuring it is a welcoming neighborhood for the homeless. There will also be an interview with actors appearing in Boyle Street’s short film City Embers, a fictional movie about what life is like for homeless youth in Edmonton. Sam Leibel will tell you how you can support the Society for Safe Accommodations For Queer Edmonton Youth, and Marlene Orr is going to share how Ambrose Place is having a positive impact in the community!

Oh, and you can tune in online at by clicking right…here.

“Back in Class!”

The History of Punk is kicking off a new semester!

Since this is our first meeting, we’ll be hammering out this term’s syllabus. The plan going forward will be to meet once a month – potentially on the last Wednesday – although that will be up for discussion. And so will be topics of each class!

Once we decide on class themes for the next several months, we will be screening the video of Professor Matthew Worley‘s interview with Steve Ignorant.
