Among many other activities in the homeless community, Michele Marchand has been a contributing editor of Real Change since its beginning in August of 1994. She has given permission for her memorials for members of our community who have died, book reviews, and other articles to be reprinted here.
Michele prefers to help others speak for themselves, and would not appreciate my putting a spotlight on her. I will let you learn about her through her writing. I believe that her passionate commitment to "comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable" shines through, and is spotlight enough.
