Alliance To Screen Documentary 'Lost Angels' at Conference

On the second day of the Alliance's 2014 National Conference on Ending Homelessness at the Renaissance Washington DC Hotel in Washington, DC, conference attendees will have a chance to attend a free screening of "Lost Angels," a documentary film about life on Skid Row. The film covers the history of the area of Los Angeles, notorious for its poverty, and chronicles the lives of its low-income and homeless residents and efforts by the city to revitalize the neighborhood. The film will screen at 4:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, July 30, in the Mt. Vernon room. DVDs of the film will be available for purchase for $10 during the conference.
