Interview with Street Roots Editor-in-Chief, K. Rambo


A new investigation from Street Roots found that many homeless camps in Portland that are posted for a sweep are actually posted two to three times before the sweep actually happens. 

It makes it difficult for unhoused folks to know what to expect, and it makes it difficult for service providers to know when they should offer support. 

KBOO's Althea Billings speaks with K. Rambo, Editor-in-Chief at Street Roots, and author of the piece, to learn more about their findings.
