Homefront 911 -OUR stories

August 1, 2011

Stacy Bannerman, who is a good friend of Left Face, a tireless advocate for military families and author has been organizing and editing a monologue about OUR issues, OUR stories – the epidemic of disconnection as Bob Woodruff called it.  If you are in the area – this is something you need to attend.  If you have an audience who needs to hear this – check out the link.

 

 

Friday, August 5th, 7:30 pm, The Old Church, Portland, OR

 

You’ve heard how nearly 10 years of war is affecting the troops. Homefront 911 tells the stories of the families left behind. Drawn from actual accounts of how the war is coming home, these original monologues speak to – and from – the heart of the American Homefront.  Powerful, personal, and provocative, Homefront 911 is a cure for the epidemic of disconnection.

This event is a project of The Sanctuary for Veterans & Families, 501c3, http://www.sanctuaryvf.org.   Homefront 911 is accessible and open to the public with a sliding-scale suggested donation of $5-25.  Tickets are available at www.showtix4u.com.  Tickets at door cash or checks only.

Please turn off cell phones or put them on vibrate during the performance.  Taking pictures or video of the performance is strictly prohibited.  Thank you for your cooperation.
