Homelessness is again on the rise in Portland. Are Portlanders ready to rise to the challenge? And what is the street response plan Street Roots proposed recently and that's currently in Mayor Wheeler's budget?
In this episode, we'll hear from John Horvick of DHM Research as part of our recurring segment "The Margins," which looks at what Oregonians really think about the issues. We'll then talk to Emily Green from Street Roots and Tremaine Clayton of the Portland Fire and Rescue's CHAT program about how to fix Portland's chaotic and ineffective approach to calls for "unwanted persons" and other incidents involving homeless people.
Dan Rivas is our host. The music is by Max McGrath-Riecke.
