The Women’s Justice Circle at St. Margaret Shelter for Women and Children in Spokane celebrated a phenomenal success by petitioning the Spokane Transit Authority to put a bus stop closer to the Shelter. The stop went up less than a month after the request was made. While this bus stop does shorten the commute for many of the women at St. Margaret, it represents an accomplishment far more significant than a few saved minutes each day: voices were raised, and an institution listened, proving that a small group of concerned citizens can make a difference, even if those citizens happen to be homeless.
