A Chance to Speak allows individuals living in poverty tell their own stories, from homelessness, to gang violence and the sexual exploitation of children in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (Canada).
Saskatoon is a small Canadian city with a metro population of just over 300 000, yet continually ranks near the top of Canada's crime statistics (per capita). The city has boomed economically recently, yet there is a growing divide between the rich and poor. A Chance to Speak, seeks to share the stories of those living in poverty in Saskatoon.
For the month of March $2 from every sale of the documentary will be donated to SWITCH (Student Wellness Initiative Toward Community Health), a local charity in the cities core. SWITCH is a student run health clinic that provides a variety of services to those living in poverty in the city. Including but not limited to: Medical Care, Counseling, Physical Therapy, Substance use, Nutritional Advice, Advocacy, Free food and drinks and childcare.
