Web Exclusive: On the road with the "One Man March for the Homeless"


Stephen T! Millhouse (no, that exclamation point is not a typo), is on a 1,460 mile march to call attention to homelessness and hunger. Millhouse, a veteran, has been homeless himself, in both California and Montana, and relied on social services and veterans assistance to survive. Now, he’s repaying the favor, raising money by walking from his current home of Missoula to his former home of Los Angeles, by way of the Bay Area. The 1,460 miles Millhouse is traveling is no random distance: He says an average homeless person walks between three and five miles per day in search of shelter, food, water, health care services and other things required to live. Over the course of a year, that averages out to 1,460 miles. Millhouse is in San Francisco right now and dropped by our station to tell Executive Editor Ben Trefny some stories from his trip.

Ben handles daily operations in the news department, overseeing the editorial and sound engineering teams, delivering daily newscasts, producing the nightly news and culture show Crosscurrents, and supervising special projects including KALW's Audio Academy training program.
