African Americans and Latinos constitute 40% and 35%, respectively, of the 60,000 homeless people (43,000 unsheltered) in Los Angeles County, with the unsheltered population in the city of Los Angeles alone nearly doubling (from 15,000 to 25,000) in the past four years. Both in the city of Los Angeles and in Los Angeles County, one third of all homeless are chronically homeless, experience serious mental illness and have experienced domestic violence. One fifth of all homeless have a substance abuse disorder as well as a physical disability. For more information: Los Angeles Mission ( ), Downtown Women’s Center ( ), My Friend’s Place ( ).

michaelchristopherbrown: I photographed Rebecca Masika Katsuva several times between

I photographed Rebecca Masika Katsuva several times between 2012-2016 and was amazed by her resiliency, bravery and compassion. As an activist and a survivor of sexual assault, she continually sacrificed her safety to help other victims over the years. During the Second Congo War in 1999, attackers killed Masika’s husband and sexually assaulted her and her daughters, then 13 and 14. When they became pregnant as a result of the assaults, Masika and her daughters were forced to leave home after being disowned by her husband's relatives. That same year, Masika founded a ‘listening house’ at her home, located in the isolated village of Minova. A shelter for women to recover from violent acts, it provided medical help and consisted of several dozen houses for women to live in. In January 2009, former rebels, then newly integrated into the Congolese military, raped Katsuva for the fourth time. The former rebels said they attacked Katsuva because she accused them of assaulting women. Masika adopted 18 children over the years, all born of mothers who were sexually assaulted. In the decade before her death, in February 2016, she helped over 6,000 rape survivors.
