On the May 20th edition of Your Call, it’s our media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of homelessness in California.
For one day, on June 29, media organizations in San Francisco will join forces to shine a spotlight on the city's homeless crisis. San Francisco has about 6,700 homeless people. Last year, the number of homeless people in Los Angeles County increased 5.7 percent to nearly 47,000. How are the media reporting on the root causes of homelessness? Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
