“Peggy Peattie has been a true advocate for San Diego’s homeless neighbors since I met her two decades ago; she captures the true beauty, strength, and vulnerability of those trying to survive the bitter streets.
As a homeless provider in San Diego for over thirty years, it’s remarkable and inspiring to see a journalist truly get in the “trenches,” not only to capture sincere moments of those that are many times forgotten, but to honor and encourage those she encounters.
Peggy’s grit, passion, and eye for seizing unforgettable spilt-second occurrences are unsurpassed. Her talent speaks for itself, but I’m also moved by her unwavering commitment of social justice issues.”
