Social Media Meets Social Justice

You pass them on the street. You look away when they stand on the corner and hold their signs while you wait for the light to turn green. You’d rather not sit by them on the bus, and sometimes you wonder what their lives were like before you saw them. So what do you do about it? What are we supposed to do about it? Give them a buck? Give them your leftovers? Don’t give them money because you know it’ll go straight to drugs or alcohol or something else?

How about learning about the stories behind the stigma? Invisiblepeople.tv is doing this. They are sharing raw, shocking and uncomfortable glimpses into the lives of the hundreds of thousands of homeless in our neighborhoods, towns, cities and states. The pages and pages of video blogs on Invisiblepeople.tv’s site are there to move us to action. Don’t be a spectator. Do something.
