When Mama and Me Lived Outside chronicles one year in a mother and daughter’s decade-long journey through homelessness and its related experiences of criminalization, police harassment, eviction, and grinding poverty. It tells of an experience specific to houseless families who must go into hiding to survive as they face the constant threat of separation and criminalization for the sole act of being houseless. Lisa “Tiny” Gray-Garcia, author of Criminal of Poverty - Growing Up Homeless in America created this story from her own experience as a 10, 11 and 12 year-old child of a disabled, traumatized mama. She, like thousands of other unseen houseless children, loved her mama, no matter what, and her life was forever changed by poverty and homelessness in Occupied Turtle Island, aka the US.
