Homelessness just became a crime in Hungary, again. But what does that mean for the population of an estimated 30,000 to 50,000 people experiencing homelessness in the country?
// Joan Mulholland, Civil Rights Activist from ’60s //
Joan Mulholland was at the Woolworth counter for the famous sit-in and in the mix at Civil Rights marches all over the south. She was just a teen in the late 1950s and early 1960s, but she was fiercely dedicated to the idea of a human family.
“The worst they could do was kill us,” said Mulholland.
And dang did they try. Mulholland was shot at, imprisoned for months, hunted by the KKK, and even rejected by her family. Despite this – which would understandably deter many – her devotion to equality only grew.
“Segregation was unfair. It was wrong, morally, religiously. As a Southerner — a white Southerner — I felt that we should do what we could to make the South better and to rid ourselves of this evil,” Mulholland told the Daily Kos. She understood that her position of privilege and power meant she was obligated to make a splash.
