Today on Town Square: community activists' response to Honolulu's plan for the homeless and comparison to best practices


by Larry Geller

Tune in today to Town Square with Beth-Ann Kozlovich and guests—as they delve into the city’s plan to manage its homelessness crisis. 5-6 p.m. 89.3 FM or on your cable someplace, or stream it from hawaiipublicradio.org. Lots of ways to listen. And you can call in with your own questions or comments.

Guests will be:

Jenny Lee, Staff Attorney, Hawai'i Appleseed Cemter

Kathryn Xian, Executive Director, Pacific Alliance to Stop Slavery

Matthew Doherty, Director of National Initiatives, The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness

The commercial media have done little more than echo what the Mayor and City Council say they will do.

Tune in to learn more.

Find out how Honolulu’s plan fits with what other municipalities have done starting years ago, and how their experiences have come together to form well-established best practices for assisting those living outside to move into stable housing and to provide for themselves.

It takes time, and it takes a conversation to understand Honolulu’s plans and how our tax money is being spent. Listen, form your own opinion. Call and say it on the air.

Requiring those Captcha codes at least temporarily, in the hopes that it quells the flood of comment spam I've been receiving.
