Anthony Williams is the co-founder of Picture the Homeless and is currently a leader for homeless rights in his native Baltimore, Maryland, where he continues to organize around human shelter conditions and homeless services and is active with the Continuum of Care process in Baltimore. Anthony ultimately organizes for the right to a home and to be free from police abuse. He is a member of United Workers and employed as the sexton at the First Unitarian Church.
Raised in foster care and group homes in Baltimore, Anthony knows the homeless system inside and out, and has a deep understanding and empathy for the many ways that folks become homeless. He is a survivor and a leader, an experienced homesteader, and now a playwright. The adaptation of his journals into the play, The King of Howard St., offers insight into a group of homeless folks living in a squat in Baltimore, Maryland and was performed to sold out audiences in Baltimore in May and June of 2017.
