Exploring the intersection of public space and homelessness


Episode 14: Breanne Schuster


There is a level of opacity surrounding so much related to homelessness, and perhaps no area is more shrouded and misunderstood than the laws that guide where and when unhoused people can eat, sleep, and live in public spaces. To get one perspective about where the law and homelessness intersect, I recently sat down with Breanne Schuster of the ACLU of Washington to speak about what laws guide municipal responses to homelessness and how the ACLU works with cities to ensure those laws are adhered to.
