"Homeless Hero": The Story of One of the 12 Most Endangered Activists in America [VIDEO]

"Homeless Hero" tells the story of Cheri Honkala's rise from homelessness to the leadership of a growing popular movement in America.

This moving and engrossing video is from an Al Jazeera segment called "Homeless Hero". It explores the activism of Cheri Honkala, a single mother and former homeless person herself, who has fought passionately in defense of homeless Americans, who are routinely abused by authorities and/or the system itself. It's a powerful and important story of the millions of forgotten Americans who are bound to be overlooked in the Super Tuesday hoopla. Check out the video to your right for more.
