I met Laverne near a river bank in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania while working with outreach Dr Jim Withers.

Laverne shares a very emotional and very real story about police harassment. Although I have worked with some amazing police officers who go above and beyond to help our homeless friends, we have a serious problem with police harassment when dealing with the homeless population.

Please watch Laverne’s powerful story and please share with everyone you know.

How can we reduce and stop police harassment of homeless people?
