Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker joins the broadcast to explore the challenges in his jurisdiction - and those throughout the D.C. region.
If you live in Washington D.C., homelessness is an issue that, regardless of your relationship with it, touches all residents. You may see it while driving or walking to the Metro. You may be living with it yourself. You may be actively working to end it. But how often do the stakeholders in our city gather to discuss these issues together? Kojo will convene a community conversation on homelessness and affordable housing at the Dorothy I. Height Library in Northeast D.C. for a frank conversation about our shared responsibilities as a community and how our response reflects our values.
- Nkechi Feaster Affordable Housing Advocate
- Robert Warren Director, People For Fairness Coalition
- Laura Zeilinger Director, D.C. Department of Human Services
