Poor People Gonna Rise Up!

The Homelessness Marathon put a spotlight on Fresno and the way this city treats its homeless residents. The story that follows is about a one hour panel that was held during the event. The Homelessness Marathon was 14 hours long. The photo below is from the first panel, which included Cynthia Greene, Joanna Garcia, Pamela Kincaid, Jeremy Alderson, and Alphonso Williams. Jeremy Alderson is the host and producer of the Homelessness Marathon. The guests are all a part of a lawsuit against the City of Fresno demanding that city workers stop taking and immediately destroying homeless peoples property. A preliminary injunction has been issued. A date for the lawsuit to be heard in federal court is expected to be announced soon.
