Housing First: KMOJ Explores Housing Challenges and Opportunities – Hour 2

Housing First: KMOJ explores Housing Challenges and Opportunities, So Our Community Can Thrive – Hour 2The program continues the exploration of how housing challenges affect people in our communities from Hour 1. In this program, we look at what is now being done to mediate the effects of these historical inequities, and current efforts to create more affordable housing in the twin cities, as well as what is being done to end homelessness in our communities. In February of 2020, KMOJ hosted a live community conversation, moderated by KMOJ’s Zannie K, and featuring researcher Dr. Brittany Lewis, legal aid attorney Joey Dobson, Ward 5 Council Member Jeremiah Ellison, and former executive director the of MPHA, Tracey Scott. The program also highlights the voices and stories of many community members speaking about their housing challenges and opportunities. The event on February 4th, 2020 took place at the Cora McCorvey Health & Wellness Center and was hosted by KMOJ and Twin Cities PBS. KMOJ’s “Housing First” programming was made possible by funding from the Minnesota Arts and Culture Heritage Fund. Twin Cities PBS received funding from The Pohlad Family Foundation to help support this event.  **
