"The stereotypes of people living in poverty throughout the United States are among the most negative prejudices that we have. And people basically view particularly homeless people as having no redeeming qualities” ~ Susan Fiske, Professor of Psychology. Princeton University
News headlines this week shared the story of the new teen trend of taking "selfies" with homeless people. I won't give the story any more traffic by linking to it here. Teens are also the number one perpetrators of violence against homeless people.
Invisible People's work is important!
I strongly believe that if the general public viewed our homeless neighbors as being the real people that they are, there wouldn't be such humiliation and violence against people experiencing homelessness! Awareness and education on homelessness can change that, and your support in funding Invisible People is breaking wrong stereotypes and changing how tens of millions of lives view homeless individuals.
