Have you heard? CSH Speak Up Advocate LaRae Cantley teamed up with former CSHer Molly Rysman and Bill Pitkin, former Director of Domestic Programs for the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, to convene the first ever Housing Justice LA Summit. Accompanying the Summit, LaRae and Molly have produced two podcast episodes that are a must listen. In the first episode Molly and LaRae interview each other on the origin of the podcast, their personal stories, and what they hope to explore in future episodes.
The second episode, Race & Homelessness, features CSH Speak Up Advocate June Cigar, who shares the story of her own brush with homelessness, then LaRae and Molly interview Monique King-Viehland about how racism in America has fueled homelessness and how LA might start to address the disproportionate impact of homelessness on black Americans. The episode closes with a poem by Michael Nelder.
