Episode 45: Fallen Leaves

Updated: a day ago

In Seattle, thousands of houseless persons have died from the elements or violence through the years. Today, Alisha will be telling the stories of two of those folx; Daniel Alberto and Davina Garrison. One case closed while the other, 15 years later, remains unsolved. Preyed upon for their perceived weakness and disregarded as a nuisance, Anitra Freeman joins the show to discuss the perilous reality faced by today’s houseless population and the work she does with ShareWheel.org to provide shelter and resources for our neighbors who need it most.
