Video: Burien is considering paying this private group to sweep homeless encampments. We called the founder

Aug 16, 2023, 3:16 PM

Business owners in Burien, WA have been so frustrated by the illegal homeless encampments on their property that they are now paying a private group called ‘The More We Love’ to clear out some of those tents.

Now, the City of Burien is considering hiring this group to perform encampment sweeps, too. But not everyone on the council is on board.

So Gee and Ursula call up the founder of the organization themselves. Her name is Kristine Moreland, and she joined the show live on Wednesday, August 16th, 2023.
