To create Act Of Listening, students at the University of Saint Francis teamed up with 89.1 WBOI through an AARP-funded grant. Part of the project’s goal was to alleviate loneliness and isolation in older, low-income adults. Over the 2018-19 school-year, students went out in teams of two and met a variety of older adults in Fort Wayne. One visit was recorded to bring these conversations to a wider audience.
Now, we’re going to hear from Beth. Beth is a learner, survivor, and advocate. In their conversation, Beth talks about surviving domestic abuse and hopes to help others who have been in similar situations by sharing her story.
