My Homelessness Article in the NY Post
Confronting a troubling issue with courage and clarity.
In case you missed it, I was in Sunday’s New York Post with a piece about homelessness policy in the US and our work at the Cicero Institute.

One of the most extraordinary moments in our work was when we partnered last year with a courageous Missouri legislator who was homeless herself as a young woman to upend the homeless status quo in her state. I discuss how Sen. Rehder and other leaders are standing up to the corrupt activists and NGO’s that are spreading misery and breaking our cities.
