We Heart Seattle is frequently present during city-sanctioned encampment sweeps

February 4, 2022

This incident took date at a violent park sweep at Dexter park. Summer of 2021. This was the first time in person I’ve seen We heart Seattle & after that it wasn’t the last.

This group presented themselves as to help the houseless but it turned out to be the opposite. I saw manipulation & exploitation.

A few times some houseless folks would have gotten inside Andrea Suarez’s truck & not return without notice or to retrieve their belongings. It was clear this tactic was to separate those from others & influence them to thinking help was given & Promises made that only lasted maybe 24 hours of some said housing by WHS.

Every violent houseless encampment [sweep] done included WHS people as well.
