“Nothing Ends Homelessness Like a Home”: Advocates Slam Trump’s Attack on SF & Homeless People…

01) “Nothing Ends Homelessness Like a Home”: Advocates Slam Trump’s Attack on SF & Homeless People


“President Trump is continuing an all-out attack on San Francisco’s homeless population and political leaders. On Wednesday, the Trump administration filed an environmental notice of violation against San Francisco, falsely claiming that the city’s homelessness crisis has caused water pollution. City officials have repeatedly rejected Trump’s unfounded claims that homelessness is connected to water quality. California is home to 12% of the country’s population but half of the country’s unsheltered homeless people. President Trump has been pushing for a crackdown on the crisis for weeks and threatened to destroy homeless encampments, increase police enforcement and even jail homeless people. For more on the issues surrounding the affordable housing crisis and homelessness, we speak with Jennifer Friedenbach, executive director of the Coalition on Homelessness, and Paul Boden, executive director of the Western Regional Advocacy Project.”

    President Trump seems to despise all things Californian progressive, particularly anything green.

    The solution to immediate housing of the many homeless, in such a relatively warm state, is I think charity and social enterprise funded micro homes made from timber and insulated with ‘hempcrete’ bricks, but also fully compatible with local health & safety regulations/laws.

    These huts would be close to public toilets with showering facilities.

      Trump hates everything that makes sense for people, who are not himself.

      I think tiny homes and eco domes are a good place to start.

      It’s a disgrace that so many homes set empty, by people are out in the elements.
