These walks focused on 22nd and 23rd Streets.
On 23rd Street, we picked up two additional walkers as we passed by. One of the people is a regular attendee at our Wednesday bible study. The other comes to church regularly and lives close by.
We talked with a woman who owns and rents several of the houses around the church. She said that she is a former police officer and tries to work with people to provide affordable housing.
We talked with a man who one of our church members had grown up with. We talked about the drug epidemic that spread through the community following the Vietnam War.
We met a young woman who was here leading a workshop with students at PeterPaul. We helped her carry snacks in for the students.
