YouTube Spotlights InvisiblePeople.TV & Helping Homeless Today

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

"Fifteen years ago, Mark Horvath was homeless on the streets of Los Angeles," begins YouTube's introduction to today's user spotlight. "Today, he runs, a project that inspires people who live in tent cities, in shelters, and on sidewalks to share their stories on YouTube."

If you aren't familiar with Horvath's work, these videos are a great introduction. You may also know him from his blog, Twitter, or have had the pleasure to meet him in person.
