Asian American Homeless Advocate Told To “Go Back Where You Come From”

Betty Chinn

A horrendous childhood in China living in the streets inspired Betty Chinn to dedicate her life in helping the homeless in the United States.

Unfortunately not everyone in her Northern California community thinks she is doing a great thing.

Her story was featured by CNN Hero’s.

  1. RE: Asian American Homeless Advocate Told to “Go Back Where You Came From: Totally inspiring and puts to shame those of us who could do more. Her life is enriched by her service to humanity and those around her are enriched by her compassionate action. She is indeed a hero. Makes Kavanaugh and all those repugnicans even more disgusting.
