Nearly three years ago I took a big risk and drove up to Sacramento to help empower our homeless friends after watching the circus created by Oprah. At the time, I was nineteen months unemployed. InvisiblePeople.tv just started, and driving around with a camera seemed like a dumb idea. But I took the last little bit of money I had and headed north. Also around three years ago, homeless activists in Sacramento started a campaign to acquire "safe ground" for campers to call home. It's been a battle, but our friends at Safe Ground [http://twitter.com/#!/SafeGroundSac] have won a few court cased and they continue to fight for homeless people in Sacramento. Today I visited Safe Ground and was walking around meeting new friends. Over the hill a man was watching us. Robert walked down the hill and asked to be interviewed. I am so honored he did. Please watch and listen to Robert's story. It's very powerful, and shows the pain and frustration these gorgeous people have to face every day. They don't want to live there, they just don't have anywhere else to go.
