Jules Boykoff Writes About Portland Homelessness Crisis

Jules Boykoff, professor of politics and government, wrote an article about the Portland homelessness crisis on commondreams.org. In the article, Boykoff argues that cities should commandeer hotels to provide housing for the homeless. It's even more important for this to happen now because it's nearly impossible to shelter in place from COVID-19, when you don't have a home. Also, due to a lack of access to adequate hygiene and sanitation, homeless people are at a higher risk to suscept the disease.
