Homelessness Through a Peacemaking Lens
On this edition of Peace Talks Radio, we’ll explore the challenges surrounding chronic homelessness in the United States. According to the National Council to End Homelessness, as of January 2020, there were 580,466 people experiencing homelessness on our streets and in shelters in America. Most were individuals (70 percent), and the rest were people in families with children. They lived in every state and territory, and they include people from every gender, racial, and ethnic group. A lot of us wonder how best to help those living on the streets. This program features three women working on the forefront of this issue. Correspondent Emily Cohen speaks with Wren Fialka, the founder of Spread the Love Commission, Miranda Twitchell, a leader in the unsheltered homeless community in Salt Lake City, and Eva Thibadeau-Graczyk the CEO of Temenos Community Development Corporation in Houston.
