Description

Did any of you ever want to be a superhero when you were a kid and protect your city, neighborhood or community? Like Batman, our guest this week, epidemiologist Dr. Flojaune Cofer, PhD, MPH, is committed to stopping forces that hurt our neighbors through community trust and partnerships. Together we can compassionately solve the homeless crisis.  

Join Theosophist Benjamin W. Decker Dr. Flojaune Cofer in a poignant conversation about how sometimes spiritual awakening means standing up to injustice and inequality and letting our hearts be roused into action.  Dr. Flo encourages listeners to not be deceived into believing the lie that it is hard to fix homelessness and other injustices. The solution to homelessness is simple, it’s providing homes and helping people stay healthy.
