PRESENTED BY: Meaningful Movies Tacoma
2:00 PM, Wednesday, October 19, 2022 PST

Tacoma Meaningful Movies is pleased to present an in person screening of Stories of Us: Camp Second Chance.

Director Melinda Raebyne embeds herself at one of Seattle’s homeless camps, Camp Second Chance, one winter, challenging public ignorance and humanizing a population that locals would rather neglect. Sharing with you some of their personal stories and her actual experience of what it’s like to be homeless. By putting faces to the statistics and a voice to their stories, humanizing a population in ways that allow viewers to see themselves and better relate to a neglected and often forgotten population.

What’s possible when society’s “forgotten population” decides to beat the odds and invest their hopes in each other instead of putting hope in a broken system. Using the pains of their past to be the fuel that drives them to create a better tomorrow. Camp Second Chance is an encampment founded by the homeless to foster an environment that allows them to become productive people in society. Stories Of Us is their stories and ours. One of triumph, showing us that the power lies within our own willpower not to just survive to thrive
