The Edwin Johnson Award:
The Faithful Fools will be giving out the first Edwin Johnson Award. The Edwin Johnson Award has been created by Citizen Cinema and the Faithful Fools Street Ministry to honor an unsung Tenderloin hero. Edwin Johnson was a, once homeless turned homeless advocate, and a founding member of the Tenderloin yGroup Player's Ensemble. He appears in several of the 9 @ Night Films and embodies the spirit of this award. Edwin never forgot his life on the streets nor his friends there. His journey out of homelessness to advocate for the people of the Tenderloin is an example to us all. This special award recognizes an individual or group which embodies the spirit and dedication to others which is Edwin Johnson's legacy.

"If you get the gist of the 9 @ Night movies you get the gist of the Fools. That's where the rubber hits the road."
Reverend Dr. Kay Jorgensen, Co-Founder - Faithful Fools Street Ministry
