Housing Justice LA

Episode 3: Rising Rents

January 18, 2020

Monika Wood tells us how she was pushed from her home by rising rents, found refuge in a safe parking program while living in her car, and then got herself back on her feet and into her own place with the help of a rapid rehousing program.

Then Molly interviews Christina Livingston about how the financialization of housing has driven rising rents and the connection between the housing crisis and homelessness crisis.

We close with an impromptu rendition of "A Change is Going to Come" sung by James B., DJ of our January 9th Housing Justice Summit, who formerly lived on the streets of Downtown LA, mere blocks from where the event was held.
