In 2019, 567,715 people in the US experienced homelessness on a single night. 151,278 of those individuals were in California.
California’s total represented a 16.4% increase over 2018, one of the largest year-to-year gains of any state, and enough to erase what would have otherwise been a national decrease in homelessness.
This week, in an effort to speak with lawmakers and leaders on both sides of the aisle about one of the major crises of our time, The Issue Is headed to USC, where the Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy hosted "Unhoused: Addressing Homelessness in California.”
The Issue Is: with Elex Michaelson is California's only statewide political show, broadcast from FOX 11 Studios in Los Angeles. For airtimes and more information, go to TheIssueIsShow.com
