Not The Occupy Movement - Tent cities

This isn’t the occupy movement but tent city, Sacramento (U.S). These are make shift allotments/facilities providing temporary fix to shelter homeless people, tent city isn’t just a place in Sacremento, but something I’d consider the last resort and it can happen anywhere. brings light to the stories of trials & tribulations and briefly interviews some of those living in tent cities to remind us they were just like us to, and emphasises what happened and how they’ve arrived at this unfortunate chapter in their life. We may give them labels, generalize, stigmatize and look at homeless people differently but have you ever considered getting to KNOW one? Well you can (or at least do so behind a computer) and make at least one voice heard. CAUTION: Some content may be offensive.
