Sacramento to Tell Its Tent Dwellers to Move Along

This is an update to my post on “The Tent Dwellers,” who I believe are the lineal descendants of the Hoovervilles of the Great Depression. I stated earlier that a tent city had been growing through leaps and bounds in Sacramento, California. Now comes word that the city fathers are going to roust the inhabitants and push them out.

The Huffington Post is asking its readers to report, with text and short videos, exactly where these tent cities have been sprouting up in their communities.

Send any information you’ve got (or pictures) to submissions+homeless@huffingtonpost.com.

Something has to be done. You could be part of the answers.
