“Me? At a foodbank? Reaching for cans of spam? I’m as lily white as they come! And what’s even more disturbing is I’m not alone. There are plenty of formerly-known-as-middle class white folks up in here with me.”

Rha Goddess portrays Linda Trankins, a white, formerly middle class white woman who is now at a foodbank after the interest rates on her mortgage skyrocketed, making her the victim of foreclosure.

Rha Goddess is a hip hop artist, playwright, and performer. She created Opportunity Now! Stories from the Frontlines of Economic Justice and Recovery as a series of filmed monologues in response to the barriers facing employment and livelihood for people of color, poor people, immigrants and women.
