5 Social Media Accounts Every Homelessness Activist Should Follow

 

As you saw in our last blog, there are several ways for absolutely anyone to be an activist. The quickest and easiest way to advocate for your favorite cause is through sharing information on social media and educating your friends and family.

One of the challenges nonprofits face is getting their message out to more people, especially with Facebook’s frequent algorithm updates. It’s up to you to engage with their social media posts to ensure you remain updated on the issue and can share with others when you feel especially inspired!

If you are passionate like we are about ending homelessness, here are five Twitter and Facebook pages you should be following – and sharing!

  1. Hi I was homeless from 2015-2018. I want to help the homeless in Tulare County. There are so me statistics on the homeless community. Some people who’ve never been in such a situation cannot pass judgement on the ones who suffer in so many ways. Imagine just for a moment that something bad happened, which left you homeless. Scurrying to find water, food, a safe spot to sleep without being beaten, raped or worse. I take it very personal when non homeless people look down at the homeless and say, “he/she smells!” How dare you for thinking your better than….shame on you for treating a human being as if he or she is a stray rabbid dog! Tulare County has very little resources to actually help the people in our own community. Imagine waking up and not having a shower, breakfast, the morning paper, or a toilett. There isn’t relief for men, women and children forced into extreme poverty, prostitution, homicide, sex trafficking and countless unimaginable things that will die with each survivor. Some of the most kindest people that you will ever meet. The only problem with society is that some people are only worried about themselves and material nonsense. Im willing to help people without hesitation. Jesus went seeking the poor, the broken, disabled, addicts to spread the word of God and to show love. That’s what it is all about. Being a goid person. Be kind and consider someone else for a change. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Be an Angel of Light to someone in a dark place.
    Sincerely Bree Bree
