What Landlords Have on You

"Hello Hi Laura Hi. Hi, it's Celeste earlier. This week I called Lauren Kirshner. She's an investigative reporter at the markup who loves to dig into official records and pages of data a couple of years ago. She took a close look at the algorithm that produces risk assessments in courtrooms. These risk assessments are used to help judges decide whether to grant bail or not they're based. On automated background checks and they produce a score that predicts how likely it is that an individual will commit a crime in the future we actually did a show on this earlier this year Lauren found that the risk assessment scores which are seen as objective are actually biased against black individuals. This year she discovered that the same technology is being used in a wholly different situation. We. got a tip from an attorney who had heard about a risk score given to tenants. That for being used not only in the private market for landlords, but also in public housing authorities and so I intrigued to learn about these tenant screening reports. I wanted to learn where they are being used and which companies were most common. Two simple questions that turned out to be very difficult to answer partly because there are so many companies doing background checks and partly because every company seems to use a different system to produce their reports. Lauren discovered that landlords are given an incredible amount of information about perspective tenants. Landlords have used credit reports for a long time, but these background checks go beyond your payment history in outstanding loans they can also list arrest records, traffic tickets, small claims, court filings, evictions, and Child Support History, and it takes all that information and compiles it and conveys it to the landlord, and sometimes the landlord getting tenant screening report will get the full information that has been compiled about this person who's applying for an apartment or sometimes they'll just get a risk or or thumbs up or thumbs down a recommendation that the landlord either accept or deny this person for their housing. If you get a thumbs down your often denied housing. It's that simple and that report can follow you wherever you go make it difficult to find anyone who will rent to you or give you a loan or a cell phone contract or a job. The kinds of decisions that these background checks are involved in a really high stakes decisions. You know if you have mistake on your credit report and you can't get a loan for a house that you want or if you have a mistake on your criminal background check and it looks like you're a felon and you can't find a place to live I, mean these are. These are really important moments in people's lives. This can be a problem even when the background checks are accurate but Lauren found these reports that decide whether you deserve housing are frequently wrong. Background. Checks are seriously flawed and no one seems to be regulating and industry that wields so much power over our lives.

"Philadelphia Housing Authority has reclaimed the North Philadelphia lot where dozens of homeless people and occupy pH, eh protesters had set up camp.

Our community affairs reporter Cherry Greg has the story heard first here on K Y W. Under the agreement, PhD, will providing Kamman organizer's nine rehab homes. Labor on the properties, which have been vacant for decades will be provided by the Building and Construction Trades Council pilot project is called work for home and will require the future occupants to put in sweat equity.

If he didn't deliver the land to developers, by Monday evening, pH would have lost $52 million. But as of this afternoon at six o'clock we are in control of the Region Avenue site.

Activists On How To Sustain Movement Against Police Brutality

"Cove in 19 crisis has not just been a health crisis. It's been an economic crisis to and as economic crises arise, so it is unemployment and homelessness. In the years following the 2008 economic collapse, major cities saw a dramatic rise in the number of people experiencing homelessness. And now amid the Koven 19 pandemic, we're seeing a rising rate of addictions, according to the eviction lab in 17 cities that they tracked there have been more than 53,000 eviction since the pandemic began. Results, not just homeless men on the street, but Children living in shelters, families living in their cars and Wal Mart parking lots. People crowding into friends or relatives shared rooms this period of time since the Koven 19 pandemic hasn't just exacerbated the problem. It's also Given rise to a kind of grassroots activism against it. Earlier this year amid the national uprisings for racial justice against police brutality, anti homelessness activists have been playing an increasingly public role. In cities like Minneapolis in Philadelphia, activists have established homeless encampments and protected them from law enforcement sweeps that displaced the camps. I'm joined now by Will James, reporter with Can k X public radio in Washington and host of the Outsiders podcast about homelessness in Olympia. Great to have you here? Well, yeah. Hey, Matt, thanks and were also on the line with Anna or so a reporter with the Philadelphia Inquirer who has been reporting on a homeless encampment slash protest in center city, Philadelphia. Anna. Thanks for joining us. Hey, thanks for having me your welcome. So, guys, let's start with you. Will you've been following the homes this crisis throughout the West Coast? Can you just give us a picture to start of what This crisis looked like before the pandemic. It Yeah. So, you know, just take Washington State, for example. You know, we have an estimated 21,000 people who are homeless in Washington state. And on the West Coast. What kind of distinguishes the West Coast from the East Coast when it comes to homeless is thie proportion of people who are homeless who are living outside who are unsheltered who are living in tents in the woods and on the sides of highways? By some accounts, you know all the numbers and homelessness are a little bit shaky, very hard to get a solid number on them. But as many as two thirds of people who are unsheltered and homeless in the United States live in California, Oregon and Washington, so homelessness has been very visible crisis impossible to ignore in the West Coast, vast encampments of people living in city downtown's and in parks and before a coven 19 homelessness was the front and center issue. In so many West Coast cities. He was getting a lot of attention. There was a ton of advocacy it was, you know, in every City Council meeting every county council meeting now homelessness is one of many emergencies that states and cities and counties they're dealing with. And so We're seeing advocates fighting for attention for this issue in a way that that really hasn't been necessary in past years. How are they fighting for attention House out? What does that look like? It looks like kind of trying to use the media show up at City Council meetings and government meetings and just kind of reminding people in power that Even though there are so many crises that we're dealing with right now, this homelessness emergency hasn't gone away. In fact, much of the West Coast, many of the cities on the West Coast were in an official state of emergency around homelessness before this began, and so cove in 19 is actually you know, a state of emergency on top of a state of emergency in many of these cities. Well, Ana tell us what's going on in Philly. There have been a couple of homeless encampments around for months. But they apparently double is protest movements. Right? Can you explain a bit about what these look like? And what they're like? Yeah, you know, for Philadelphia. It's sort of a new and unique structure. We have had encampments of homeless folks for several years now that I have grown in size and in prominence, and the city has, you know, swept them cleared them out, and then people scatter and eventually re gather somewhere else. Now in the past couple of years, they've really been concentrated in the city's Kensington neighborhood. Which is a couple of miles away from center city, and from where you know, media and politicians sort of do their everyday work. Now the largest encampment of homeless folks, which was organized in June by affordable housing advocates, is on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, which is a very prominent space sort of in the middle of the city. It's where the famous art museum is located. It's surrounded by luxury condos. And it's really in a place that is impossible to ignore. And so we now have this interesting confluence of the racial justice movement mixed with the movement for affordable housing for people living in homelessness. And so it's presenting the city with this really new and interesting challenge because they just can't handle This encampment like they have others in the past. Are they making a connection between racial justice, the black lives matter, Movements and homeless activism. Are they making a connection there? Very much so thie Encampment was established two weeks into You know the racial justice protests here in Philadelphia, and it was immediately tied to black lives matter. The activists connect the criminal justice system and policing systems. With poverty and homelessness. There are a lot of black men and women who are living in this homeless encampment who have been in and out of the sister criminal justice system almost all of their lives and The organizers of this encampment are saying, Look, this is all connected. If we reform our policing systems to stop just proportionately impacting black people in Philadelphia, we can make a you know a real change in what poverty and homelessness looks like in this city if we can get people into housing, rather than putting them in temporary shelters or sending them back out onto the streets where, whereas the activists say Homelessness could be criminalized in a variety of ways. Whether that's folks being charged for substance used public drunk in this, the like these systems really are sort of inextricably linked. And how is the city handling this? Are they allowing this homeless encampment to just stay in the center of town? I understand is also a a second one near the Philadelphia Housing Authority's office. I imagine these folks can't stay living there and intense and whatnot for then, you know, indefinitely. Yeah. You know, it's been interesting. The city has given several eviction notices A TTE this point for both encampments. You're right. There is a smaller encampment in north Philadelphia outside. The Housing Authority, which runs public housing in the city. But so far the people living there, and the activists running these encampments have resisted thes eviction notices in a variety of ways. A couple months ago, there was a federal lawsuit filed on behalf of the encampment. Residents, claiming their first Amendment right to protest was was being violated. And several weeks ago, the city put out a final eviction notice and Went, outreach workers and police showed up early one morning. At seven o'clock. There were dozens of activists who had gathered to defend the camps with sticks, boogie boards, makeshift shields, and it just was very clear that That a sweep of the encampment was going to be really ugly on DH. There was a ton of media there Tio to capture what occur so outreach workers and police sort of stepped back and No eviction has taken place yet. You know the city and the activists are are still sort of negotiating. Will

Members Of Homeless Encampment Discuss ‘Lack’ Of Affordable Housing, Mismanagement At Philadelphia Housing Authority

"The city of Philadelphia has decided not to remove the homeless encampment on the Ben Franklin Parkway. After all that we're supposed to do so tomorrow, our city Hall bureau chief Hey, What about youse? Pat Lobe is live with the update. Yes, in the city had said the camp was closed. By nine AM, however, he camp organizers and residents resolutely refused to go. They said often they would not leave without force. Oh, and Mayor Kenny says using police officers to remove that camp is something that would be a last resort, something he hopes that doesn't come, too. And so negotiations have continued with the organizer's and as a result, the city is post calling the closure in hopes of reaching a literal resolution, he says. That's been the goal all along. And he will be meeting personally with them and hope that they can come to some resolution. The city wants to place the residents of the encampment who actually are homeless into beds, either treatment beds, covert prevention bed shelter beds. However, the camp organizers have barred at the city from sending outreach workers into the camp. They'll, just from the perimeters to the officials say they have managed to place 17 people on DA. The exact number of homeless people in the camp is not known, but it's got to be 100 or even more so they they do have a ways to go on that. But city officials say that will be contingent on outreach workers getting into the camp and getting access to the people there in Japan. I know the city has said the Kamman organizers have changed their demands several times. Remind us why this cabin is there in the first place. Well, it's a protest of the lack of services for homeless people or the lack of affordable housing in the city. In general, it was started not by homeless people. The organizer's actually go home at night to sleep and come back in the morning, but they invited homeless people into the camp to join the protest. And Ah, and as I said, the exact number who Came is not known, but it was, you know, certainly dozens, and, um, so it's been there for more than a month. Now. It went up June 7th. And so it's been atleast five weeks that it's been there, and the city says that it's become increasingly unhealthy and unsafe for the encampment to stay. It's on an athletic field that it's normal used before. Use sports. Ah, it not as a place to live and so again. They're hoping to resolve this encampment. Thie organizer say they won't go without immediate, affordable housing. That, of course, is something that requires a lot more than the city acting unilaterally. I love with this live pat, Thanks for the update that encampment on 22nd Street right along the Ben Franklin Parkway. And again, the city will not force the homeless there to move. Negotiations between the city and organizers of the encampment of this protest will continue. The city originally had said that tomorrow at 9 a.m. would be the deadline for that encampment to clear out otherwise police would move in and force them out. Camp organizer said they wouldn't do so voluntarily so police would have to force them out and Mayor K. Kenny saying today that I didn't want that to happen So again. Negotiations continue over that encampment along with Ben Franklin Parkway. Stay with

"The Chicago housing authority. So I worked on all these massive redevelopments of the city. And then also when I left government, mayor Daley asked me to chair, the board of the Chicago transit authority, and I had always been keenly interested in how public transit improves, the fabric of the city and into the context of urban planning. And so that stretch of my life was just exhilarating. And I moved from being a lawyer I have to say I've never looked back. And into policy and substance substantive roles having to do primarily with urban planning there. And and then you meet the Obamas. And when I was deputy chief of staff, I recruited Michelle Robinson to come. Enjoy my team in the mayor's office that was in nineteen Ninety-one before I became Commissioner, planning and development, and she was hot on the idea. But she said to me her fiance wasn't so hot on the and she discussed it with him. And I said, well, who's your fiance where do we care what he thinks? She said, well his name is Barack Obama and he started his career as a community organizer. And he's concerned about me going right into the fire. You at least went to the frying pan of apartments. The sheriff strictly political and Michelle Obama has a lodge agree. Also law degrees. Excellent. And it was practicing law at a law firm. And so part of what drew me to her as the person who sent me here. Resumes said great young lawyer has no interest in being in a law firm wants to explore public service, right? Similarly to what had motivated me. And so I-, she said, would you have dinner with us to talk about it, which is a little unusual when you're recruiting somebody to say, but I said sure, and that was a really smart thing to do. And the the point I would make about it is is that she cared about his opinion about what she would do with her future. Because of how they looked at themselves as a unit, and there isn't a decision he made in his life where he didn't want her at the table as well. Sure. And so I think it speaks well of their partnership and so talk a little bit move fast. Forward of how you got to decide you all wanted to do this incredible journey that you went on which I think was surprising to everybody. So it was surprising. But I will. Well, it was surprising. I've had people say to me, what did you know when you met him that he'd be president of the United States one day? And I say when I first met him at that dinner. What I thought was absolutely possible. Because I thought that was clearly wanted to do public service is motivated for all the right reasons. And I thought you know, what maybe? He just one day you'll be mayor of Chicago that was the ceiling of how high could see it going. But it didn't why. Because that was my life experience I've seen Harold Washington elected to the mayor mayor his job, and it just it didn't occur to be back event that he would even aspire to be president. But it was all very natural. And I I would say after he gave the speech at the two thousand four.
