On Wednesday Professor Ed Reed PhD, Seattle University, Matteo Ricci College, World Poverty Course, accompanied 25 students on a tour of Tent City 3, presently housed at Saint Marks Cathedral on Capitol Hill, Seattle.
The students got a thorough tour and explanation of the inner workings of this Tent City by a long- term resident.
I was proud to have played a role in this visit as well as being enormously honored by these students reading “View from the Tent” as one of their class readings prior to this visit.
Here is a short video clip of one of the students reacting to her visit to the homeless camp. (Another group of 25 students will visit the camp on Friday 27 April)
Thank you Dr. Reed for stretching education out into the real world of day to day survival for some in our community.
