About the Author
Diane Nilan, one of America’s most respected advocates for homeless families, has decades of direct experience, advocacy leadership, filmmaking, and an unconventional approach to raising the nation’s consciousness of invisible families that can only be described as relentless.
Diane Nilan travels the country to lift up the stories of people experiencing homelessness and the challenges they face. She uses her experience of literal "bumps in the road" as a metaphor for the failures and limitations of US housing policy. She tells stories of families' bravery, determination, great care and daunting economic realities. In this COVID time (or any time) it is a wakeup call to all of us to pay attention. We as a nation are better than this! Ms. Nilan helps us to recognize this and motivates us to work to make change.
