Pam Kincaid was the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit against the City of Fresno that resulted in a $2.3 million settlement which stopped the city from taking and immediately destroying homeless people’s property. The photo in the background is Sherry Williams, who was a member of the lawsuit. Williams died before the settlement was finalized, a victim of hospital dumping.
