My new letter in the Boston Globe:
Re “Wu drafts plan for Mass. and Cass”: People suffering from homelessness, mental illness, and substance use disorder need stability and medical treatment. Although placing them in the Roundhouse hotel or in a temporary cottage at the Shattuck Hospital is a reasonable first step, we need a comprehensive plan to end homelessness from Governor Baker and President Biden. The root causes of the homelessness crisis, such as inequality, racism, and poor education, must be addressed, or the crisis such as what we see at Mass. and Cass will persist. Each of us has an obligation to become an advocate and speak out for justice.
