This podcast episode features guest Sara Rudolph.
Sara is a community volunteer and member of Portland Assembly, which she describes as "a network trying to connect like-minded people together."
Sara tell us about some of the collaborations and outreach that Portland Assembly and herself are involved in, such as the houseless-led "Stop The Sweeps" campaign, data research with WRAP (Western Regional Advocacy Project), and the cost burden on individual volunteers who help those in need.
We also discuss the effect on the community that the closure of the Sunnyside shelter has had, the removal of a decades-long food and outreach program by a Church's new congregation, business improvement districts, and the rise of terminology such as "low-barrier" in order to classify workers and job-positions intended for those who are unhoused.
