The Human Services Coalition (HSC) has teamed up with award-winning journalist Daniel Shoer Roth to produce Punto de Partida – Stories of Truth and Hope, a passionate and poetic collection of columns that illuminate South Florida’s social challenges through the eyes of those who are often overlooked and underserved.
Punto de Partida will be released on Wednesday, Oct. 24 and sell for $17.95. The project supports HSC’s involvement in ongoing community change initiatives, and expanded state and national attention to social policy issues in Miami.
HSC, the publisher of the book, paired Shoer Roth’s columns with insightful essays from local leaders such as Miami Dade College President Eduardo Padron, civic activist and radio show host Queen Brown and housing advocate Max Rameau.
“Punto de Partida is a powerful vehicle of personal stories, challenges and solutions that we we hope will engage local readers and fuel civic activism,” said Daniella Levine, president and CEO, for HSC.
Author events, student forums and book signings are planned for October and November. Please stay tuned for more details.
