LOCAL EDITION: Funding the Fight For Homelessness

Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Chairman Mark Ridley-Thomas sat down with Charter Local Edition host Brad Pomerance to discuss the crisis of homelessness and what the county is doing to help.

On any given night in Los Angeles County, there are nearly 47,000 homeless people, including 6,000 parents and their children. With a unanimous vote, the Board of Supervisors recently declared homelessness an emergency in Los Angeles County, and asked voters to approve a March 7 ballot measure aimed at financing desperately needed solutions.
