Deborah Duguid-May, Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity school student and priest at Trinity Episcopal Church in Greece, NY, spoke out recently on the City of Rochester-ordered razing of tents occupied by the homeless last weekend.
The homeless community, dubbed "Sanctuary Village," is located under a bridge and housed up to 35 people, many of whom struggle with mental illness and drug addiction.
"This is just not OK," Duguid-May said, noting that people at her church on Sunday morning, many of whom learned of the city's actions through photos posted on social media, "were just horrified."
"We're the problem, the homeless aren't the problem," she said. "We're not taking care of our community. You don't bulldoze a human community."
