Toni and Jenny head east to our Nation’s capital in this episode of PATH. They meet up with Gregory Lewis, Executive Director and CEO of True Colors United, a non-profit based in DC that implements innovative solutions to youth homelessness focusing on the unique experiences of LGTBQ youth. Gregory connects the dots early in their conversation linking the issue of youth homelessness with positive approaches to health. Their conversation is steeped in community & connection along with vulnerability and hope. This hope stems from the youth collaboration that is at the heart of the work True Colors United engages in everyday on behalf of the 4.2 million youth experiencing homelessness every year.
