About the speaker
St. Pete native and current USFSP student Alexia Perry is not your average college kid. She has always had a heart for the homeless community and in order to put her feelings to action, she launched Trusting the Process. In 6 short months, this innovative and nimble charity organization has already partnered with the City of St. Petersburg, CASA, Family Promise, and several local churches and shelters to help advance a common mission to change the homeless community for the better. Alexia frames her efforts with respect and realism, and uses public outreach, creative artistic displays, and face-to-face connections to spread encouragement, positivity, and a fresh outlook on this difficult topic.
Spare Some Change? As part of a global series on TABOO, Alexia will be speaking about her own experiences with homelessness and how she uses creative activism to shift perspectives on our city’s biggest taboo.
Roundhouse is a creative production studio rooted in video, motion graphics, and powerful storytelling. From their self-sustaining net-zero studio in sunny St. Pete, they provide clients from coast to coast with stories that evoke emotion and inspire action. As the current headquarters of CreativeMornings St. Pete, the studio provides monthly support to the chapter’s ongoing operation.
A unique pairing of community love and the classic idea of a PB&J, the PB & Jelly Deli was born out of a belief that we each have a responsibility to love our neighbors, love our neighborhood, and turn that love into action. For every meal they sell, the PB & Jelly Deli gives a meal to someone in need. Through the simple act of buying your lunch, you can show love to our city and the community members who need it most. Spread the love.
St. Pete Coffee is the brainchild of three St. Pete natives committed to bringing artisan coffee and coffee education to the city of St. Pete. Enjoying the process as much as the product, they have been roasting and serving coffee for over two years to an ever-growing clientele of local enthusiasts.
As one of St. Pete’s first craft microbreweries, Green Bench Brewing Co. has also established itself as one of the most community-friendly breweries in our city. With a comfortable tasting room and an all-ages beer garden and patio, Green Bench is a familiar host to events large and small. Their hospitality is matched only by their beer—created with an unwavering commitment to quality ingredients, a focus on innovation, and honed brewing practices.
This event is outdoors. Doors open at 8:30am or earlier, and pre-registration is required. Free parking available along Central, 1st N, and Baum Ave but walking, biking, and carpooling is strongly suggested.
In order to ensure our global impact is more about inspiration than garbage, we ask that you please BRING YOUR OWN MUG to enjoy free coffee from St. Pete Coffee.
