Heroes Unite with Alice Billman

Heroes Unite

Alice Billman, Executive Director of Heroes Unite, speaks about the struggles of low-income families and deficiencies of the public school system where their children attend. In defiance of the state cuts on arts funds, she has set up an after-school program that teaches kids, 2nd grade to 5th grade, Chinese Martial Arts. The function of Chinese Martial Arts is to teach assertiveness not aggression. Funding support for the arts has decreased dramatically in recent years. Alice has devoted herself to promoting the revival of the arts through the nurturing of new and established artists and actors in the South Florida region. Apart from the after-school program, Heroes Unite provides the community with the Heroines Choir and the Mobile Micro Theater.
