The following is an inspiring video by YouTube activist Jeff4Justice. He chronicles the story of one community organizer, Jim, based in a rural suburb 45 minutes north of Sacramento, CA. As you’ll see, while outreach is conducted through St. Andrew Presbyterian, people of many faiths and non-faith backgrounds have come together to help those in need.
The political backdrop to homelessness is discussed, including the trend toward criminalizing homelessness and those who wish to feed the homeless. There is also an interesting perspective offered about the local police reaction to St. Andrew’s outreach program.
Overall, this video is an instructive and informative guide for action that can be taken in your own area.
