Show Title: Chairman Mark Ridley-Thomas explains a Systemic Solution for Homelessness in LACounty to Dr. Marissa

Description: So why should we care about the homelessness situation in LA County? There more than 47,000 people right now who don’t have a home and want to get off the streets. Chairman Mark Ridley-Thomas talks about a systemic solution to a complex multi-faceted problem where a third of the homeless are now women and children, that one in three people are only a few paychecks away from being homeless, and that we are out of Band-Aid approaches. He has a balanced perspective on why the situation is important for everyone… that it’s about Human Dignity for all…for those on the streets, and those of us watching it happen. By voting YES on the H measure www.VoteYesonH.com everyone will be able to participate in the solution and feel good about themselves. The harsh reality of the hopelessness that is currently here for veterans who did so much for our country and are now living on the streets, for those addicted to drugs because they have no hope, to women who are raped, attacked and stolen from… it’s a situation that cannot be summarized as “just get a job”! Whatever your political orientation is this is one thing that we can all help resolve and remedy so that homelessness will never be a problem in LA County or anywhere again!
