OXNARD, Calif., July 18, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Chief Investigative Correspondent for Inside Edition, award-winning broadcaster, actress and mosaic artist Lisa Guerrero is not just investigating it; she has been rehearsing for it these last 5 weeks, with a fanfare on July 31st at the Oxnard Salsa Festival Dancing With The Community Stars Contest, says Salvation Army Oxnard. She will also be seen this fall in Brad Pitt’s upcoming baseball film, “Moneyball.”
“She is not dancing for the festival as much as dancing for the lions. An African proverb says, if the lions can’t tell their stories, the hunters will. And we have lots of lions,” Salvation Army Major Eric Lo said.
“Lisa needs your vote. Just click on: www.oxnardsalsafestival.com/Lisa_Guerrero.aspx .”
Here are some lions:
Donald lived inside a trash can in the Kmart parking lot. Started as a run-away kid from home 35 years ago, he had been homeless and in-and-out of jail. He came to The Salvation Army Oxnard free medical /dental clinic 6 years ago. Now he owns a maintenance company, conducts weekly Bible Study and recovery groups.
Maria had left her two little boys in Mexico to look for a better life but ended up in prostitution in LA. Three years ago, she came to The Salvation Army Oxnard for food and clothing. Her husband came for help also a year later. Now she owns a house cleaning business, and her husband owns a mobile car wash. Human trafficking and poverty are not hunting them anymore.
Lo says “Let’s get to work to help the lions tell their stories before the hunters tell theirs. Just one simple vote for Lisa on http://www.oxnardsalsafestival.com/Lisa_Guerrero.aspx , and click the cartoon button will do it.”
