City Inside/Out: Compassion Seattle?
City Inside/Out: Compassion Seattle?

A new Seattle coalition is backing a ballot measure to change how Seattle tackles its homelessness crisis. If passed, the charter amendment mandates that the city prioritize housing and services for homeless people and stop them from living in parks and other public spaces. Critics argue the measure could lead to more homeless encampment "sweeps" and destabilize King County's efforts to establish a regional response. City Inside/Out examines Compassion Seattle's efforts to create a new approach to the decades-old crisis of homelessness.
