Broad Street Ministry (BSM) presents Voices from Broad Street Ministry, a 21-part film series created by filmmaker and Pew Fellow Glenn Holsten, art therapist Michael Galarraga, and BSM guests during a series of workshops. Each film presents the thoughts, ideas, and experiences of BSM community members through poetry, musical performances, interviews, and other formats.

Founded in 2005, BSM seeks to create a more compassionate and just city and world and embraces the individual needs of Philadelphia’s most vulnerable populations through radical hospitality that includes feeding hundreds of guests each week and providing other life-stabilizing services like health care, clothing, mail service, and arts programs.

The series premieres on Thursday, October 28 at a free community event and continues online through November 24.
