Haight Words: Voices from the Street

Haight Words: Voices from the Street

Haight Words presents an anthology of thoughtful poetry from people sharing their experiences of being homeless on one of the most famous streets in one of the most prosperous cities in the world: San Francisco, the heart of America’s tech revolution. Colorful illustrations accompanying the writings serve as a visual commentary to the growing plight in so many of our communities.

Haight Words’ provocative approach aims to awaken the senses through illumination of silenced voices. It sends an invitation to challenge social constructs by taking the smallest of actions toward a collective shift that can prove profoundly beneficial to all concerned.
