In preparation for the Homeless Heroes Walk taking place on November 17, SAG-AFTRA member and veteran Jon Huertas sat down with veteran Sean Anthony Kaleialoha Nereu to discuss their experiences.
Conversation between Jon Huertas and Sean Anthony Kaleialoha Nereu
Moderator: Kaleialoha, why don’t you introduce yourself first?
Kaleialoha: I got involved because I am LE with the United Way right now — I am basically a Loaned Executive, and their mission of ending homelessness really resonated with me. So, I wanted to make sure that I was involved in anything I could do to help anybody out.
Jon: Very cool, I got involved because I’m on the [Los Angeles Local] Board of Directors for SAG-AFTRA and almost two years ago we started a task force to help support veterans and their families and got involved in the Joining Forces campaign and the Got Your 6 campaign — we are always trying to figure out ways to align ourselves and lend our support any way we can to any kind of veteran issues and get our members involved and get our members to help support and give back to veterans.
Jon will be taking part in the United Way Home Walk this Saturday!
United Way’s core mission is to Create Pathways Out of Poverty for all Angelenos by eradicating homelessness among:
- Local families who now represent the fastest-growing segment of the homeless population and who have fallen on hard times as a result of illness, job loss or divorce;
- Veterans and chronically homeless individuals who comprise the costliest segment of the population due to long-term disability, mental health or substance abuse issues.
Jon just tweeted that they have re-opened donations for his American Dreamers project for one more day!
$25 gets you a bunch of perks as well as a signed new photo of Jon and if you donate $100 you get an invite to the screening & a photo with Jon and the producers/directors!
See www.indiegogo.com/AmericanDreamersDoc to donate and for more information.
Yesterday, Jon tweeted about a new project called “American DREAMers” that he’s executive producer of, and which needs your help guys! What’s the project about? You’ll find absolutely all the infos related to it on the official website. If Jon asked for help, it’s because you can actually contribute to the project, by donating money, and you’ll even receive a perk if you chose to, depending on the amount you’ll donate. So contribute if you can, this project is amazing and means a lot to our guy’s heart! They even share a gorgeous portrait of Jon that we couldn’t resist to post here
