This is Ruth

Making Speak Up better since 2012.

Ruth joined Speak Up in 2012. Over the years, she’s sold thousands of magazines (she says “it feels like millions”), impacted hundreds of readers, made many dozens of friends, and spread light and love throughout the city of Charlotte.

When asked to describe herself, Ruth said, “I love people, animals, and babies.”

Ruth is a talent artist. She has published nearly a half dozen coloring books with Speak Up and promises more to come.

She’s currently safely housed—out of the cycle of homelessness—thanks to a network of supportive friends and her partnership with Speak Up.

Her Speak Up income—from selling magazines and digital subscriptions—is critical for her everyday living expenses.
