Miranda

Featured Video Play Icon

Miranda is homeless in West Los Angeles. She says she has pneumonia from living outdoors. It’s cold at night, and this winter L.A. County has received a record amount of rain. Miranda has to carry everything she owns around all day. She says the police has moved her camp seven times within the last six weeks. Right after the interview, a man in a BMW pulled up and started yelling at her to leave, but where is she going to go?

If you’re new to Invisible People’s videos, at the end of each video I ask everyone if they had three wishes what would they be. Miranda’s response after she shared her three wishes messed me up.

Miranda has been on the streets far too long.
