Tea, Toast, and Truth: Seeing Homeless

Content warning: profanity; drug use and addiction; domestic violence.

A project of Ashland High School’s Truth to Power club, “Seeing Homeless” is the third episode of their podcast series: “Tea, Toast, and Truth”.

This episode focuses on the struggles and biases that surround the houseless crisis. Truth to Power set out to interview houseless members of our community, home-free and homeless rights activists, and the Ashland Chief of Police, to present to the community a culmination of the ideas, adversities, joys, backgrounds, and controversies that revolve around the houseless issue in our county. And maybe, next time you see a houseless person on your way to buy your low-fat-caramel-latte-with-oat-milk-and-extra-caramel, you’ll stop to talk to them and help them–the change in our community starts with you.
