Les Brown, Homeless Advocate: He'll Be Missed!

The loss of Les Brown to Chicago's homeless community is one keenly felt. As someone who struggled with Brown and others against the monolithic lack of concern for the homeless throughout the 80s and 90s and beyond, I can't imagine things being the same without his voice in Chicago. Brown founded the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless and early on recieved a heart transplant. That heart beat empowered so many!
