    Thanks for this thoughtful conversation about our housing crisis– which as you point out is inextricably tied to jobs and wages. Whenever we talk about “housing” we can count on people talking about crime and ‘outsiders’. Yes! we need the long slow turn to better understanding of the dynamics of how this has happened and an end to blaming people for their lack of housing. In the meantime, we need people to step up and support using the media attention and financial support to build housing now.
