Ottawa-based filmmaker Andree Cazabon's life took a hard turn when she ended up living on the street as a young teenager. The experience has driven her to produce a number of films about young people who end up living on the street, in the care of the government, or in jail. Andree speaks about her experience on the street and what can be done to care for youth better, and keep them from entering the criminal justice system. She is speaking in Abbotsford, BC this week at the Fraser Valley Criminal Justice Conference.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
