Right 2 Survive Radio
We go out at ground zero into the streets of Portland talking to people in Portland’s houseless community and record interviews with people being affected by lack of affordable housing. Occasionally we have visitors from other places or discussions and interviews with people in other cities we visit to share our knowledge and insights with each other and the community.
Come and listen live at Sisters of the Road Cafe – 133 NW 6th Avenue, Portland – from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
