In this episode of "We The Unhoused," host Theo Henderson explores how vigilantism affects the unhoused through conversations with several people who have experienced violence and harassment firsthand. Theo first interviews Freddy G, an unhoused resident living in Echo Park, who had an explosive device thrown at his tent and narrowly missed being hit. He also has a roundtable conversation with several people living at Echo Park Lake and interviews Harvey, an unhoused resident of the El Pueblo Chinatown neighborhood. Finally, we wrap with another edition of Unhoused News and Theo's thoughts on how hatred against the unhoused spreads on social media and what allies can do to stop it.
