Homelessness Series: Cat Jones tells her own story

After two months of interviewing people about their experiences with homelessness, Cat Jones talks about why this series matters to her, and tells her own story about homelessness. Her story is an eye opener for people who think it could never happen to them. It’s a story of systemic failure, the myths we are told as a culture about capitalism, and how you can do everything “right” and still wind up homeless. As a conclusion to the two-month-long series on homelessness. Cat makes one more plea to please abandon your stereotypes and assumptions regarding who winds up homeless and how they get there. She asks, one more time, for some compassion, understanding, and empathy for people living on the edge of a capitalist society that basically just eats people alive and spits them out onto the streets when it’s done with them.
