Prove It Clarksville: Make a Stand with Kenny York Monday, July 28th

 

Clarksville, TN – Make a stand with Kenny!! Be part of the Prove It Movement on Monday. Meet us in the rear parking lot of the Refuge (635 Frosty Morn Drive) at 9:00am.

We’ll head out from there to various intersections, make a stand, and spread the word to the community about what it means to Prove It. We’re not able to get T-shirts in time, so be creative—pick up some neon yellow poster board and write “Do You Care?” and “Prove It!” in big block letters.

Please Share, and bring your friends with you on Monday—let’s make a city-wide impact for the sake of Clarksville’s homeless!

Come out and stand on the corner with Kenny York Monday.

Prove It Clarksville: Day 12: Something to Think About

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – I got a lot of honks and waves at my spot at Madison and the bypass today, but some of the expressions I saw on the faces of passersby were comical. You’d have thought I was green and had two heads and horns, which made me laugh and wave even more.

I’ve gotten some really good “advice” while standing on street corners. My favorite is “Get a job”—evidently, there are a lot of people who believe they know how to fix all homelessness.

They don’t realize how hard it is to get a job when you have no transportation, no address, no place to take a shower on a regular basis, and no place to leave your backpack if you do get an interview.
