Sasha will also discuss how the intractable problems of the lack of affordable housing and homelessness contribute to our increasingly fractious political environment.
Sasha Abramsky is the west coast correspondent for the Nation magazine, and the author of nine books, including The American Way of Poverty, and Jumping at Shadows: The Triumph of Fear and the End of the American Dream. He writes and speaks widely on the politics of extremism in today's America. Abramsky's fervent hope is for a return to humane, rational political discourse in the United States.
