Public Health Officials Are Increasingly Facing Threats
"Threats for me and my family and harassing my daughters to the point where I have to get security is just I mean, it's amazing I wouldn't have imagined in my wildest dreams. That people who object to things that are pure public health principles are so set against it and don't like what you and I say it, namely in the word of science. That they actually threaten you. That's Dr Anthony Fauci, the nation's leading expert on infectious diseases, speaking to CNN's Sanjay Gupta, about threats he and his family have received because of his work. And Dr Fauci is not alone. Public health officials across the US are also receiving threats from people who are against the policies they put forth to combat the corona virus. Things like recommendations to wear masks and practice social distancing. Michelle Mellow is a professor of law and a professor of medicine at Stanford, and she's been researching this exact topic. Michelle, Welcome to the show. Happy to be here. Shall you wrote an article about the attacks on public health officials during covert 19. What was it that prompted you to even look into this? Well, it happens that one of my bosses that Stanford is married to our Santa Clara County local health officer here in the Bay Area, So I do have a personal connection to somebody who's experienced these kind of attacks. Tell us a little bit about what kinds of attacks were talking about. All across the country. We've really seen a number of things that made your audience seem pretty shocking and are unusual even in the American context we have seen, you know the usual Internet trawling, but the attacks have taken on a highly personal and almost violent dimension. Across the country. We've seen health officer subject to dock, saying the exposure of their personal information like their addresses or loved ones, names on the Internet. Angry and sometimes armed protestors showing up at their private residences, vandalism of their offices and homes, lots of harassing telephone calls and even death threats to the point of having to have private security details assigned to their families. Michelle, one of the things that prompted me. I'd saw the research here and then saw that Dr Anthony Fauci has needed to get his own extra private security because I believed his family had been threatened. Are we primarily talking about high profile figures like that, Or are we talking about? Anyone who's sort of on the front lines dealing with Corona virus cases. In particular, we're talking about people who ordinarily are about his low profile. As you can get local public health is thean visible angel that keeps us all healthy. But most of us until this pandemic you never heard of or seen our local health officer. They have been in the news lately on television and newspaper a lot, so they're no longer such private figures. But these are not high profile figures. They're not national figures. In most cases, they're not. They don't have a political agenda. There are doctors trying to do their jobs. Who are making these threats. Well, it comes from a variety of quarters. Ah, leader in Catalyst in this movement has been the anti vaccination movement here in the U. S. That has all of a sudden pivoted from their usual agenda of attacking public figures who advocate vaccination to going after health officers who are advocating masking and the extension of state home or business closure orders, But it's not on ly these groups. They've been joined by thousands of people across the country who are just really disgruntled and incredibly stressed. By the long term economic impact and social isolation that has stemmed from public health orders during the pandemic. Medical professionals are take a Hippocratic oath to serve whoever it is that needs their help. So like this, this feels like doctors and nurses didn't necessarily sign up to be. In such a political battle, You know, it's interesting the politicization of first responders because those on the front lines were actually caring for covert patients have been politicized as heroes in this pandemic. But the same groups of individuals, doctors and nurses who are working in the public health sector have been demonised as villains. They're all working toward the same goals, and we need to understand that, although they execute their objectives in different ways, they're all working towards a single and so are we. So it's really striking to me that there's been this polarization and how folks have viewed First responders and public health doctor's Michelle. Stick with us. We'll be back in a moment. This is the take away. On the next. All of it, looking for a job thinking about switching to a new one will discuss how to navigate the remote workforce in our series, the future of work, and we meet the director of the new documentary Boy State, which goes inside the weeklong mock government exercise that gathers more than 1000 high schoolers to create their own state government. I'm Alison Stewart. Join me for all of it weekdays at noon. We're back and you're listening to the takeaway. I'm tansy. No Vega. Michelle Mellow is on the line with me. She's a professor of law and a professor of medicine at Stanford, and we're talking about recent threats against public health officials all around the country. Michelle. Have we heard anything from the Trump Administration or other politicians at any level of government about this? Because recently in New Jersey, there was a federal judge whose family was attacked. Now there are talks of increasing protections for federal judges. And I'm wondering if this is now transferring over to medical professionals and health professionals. Well, yet we have to distinguish between medical professionals who are on the frontline response like the ones who are working in hospitals and the ones I'm talking about. Are those were working in public health departments. I'm not aware of specific problems involving the folks who are working in hospitals other than nobody wants to stand next to them at the grocery store. But the public health officials really have had to have protection stepped up. Unfortunately, most of our elected officials to the extent that they're speaking to this issue at all have been joining in the attacks. You know, there are folks who are making their name for themselves politically. By joining in the chorus of attacks against public health officials. In some cases, their own public health officers, you know, saying things like their anti Democratic their tyrannical when in reality, those same health officers are the only people in that state who can issue these orders. They're executing. Planning done by other elected officials, who then sort of hide behind this rhetoric, So it really is, in my view, despicable that instead of offering support to these hardworking, underpaid under attack health officers State and local officials. And in some cases, congressmen and the president have joined in the attacks, and the president himself has been the foam enter and chief here Retweeting such statements as everyone is lying. The CDC media Democrats are doctors, everyone we're told to trust That kind of statement fans the flames. Michelle did your research show whether or not there was a difference in health officers who are in red states versus blue states or our folks that work in these positions across the board, subject to this type of harassment. You know, we really have seen it in all kinds of communities. Certainly there is a red and blue divide in willingness to accept public health measures like masking and to the extent that you're leading a community that's more red than blue. You might have a larger segment of the population going after you. But some of the people who have been under attack are in heavily blue communities were actually most of the population really supports what they're doing. Polling is very much in their favor. But there is a vocal extreme of vocal minority that is dominating attention. Is there anything that public health officials Khun do to protect themselves? You know, to protect themselves. Many of them do need security details, and they need elected officials to stand up and indicate that when these actions crossed the line into illegal forms of harassment, they'll be subject to prosecution in terms of self defense strategies. You know, I think it may be late in the game for this, but there are some things that I think We know help to cultivate public trust and buy in to coerce of public health legal measures. Polling shows us that when people feel that they have a say in public health policy agendas when quote unquote people like me can influence agendas in public health policy, they're more likely to accept laws, even the ones that they don't love. So I think there are opportunities for some health officers to double down on the transparency and candor in their public communications. We do have examples of where this has been done Extraordinary. Well. I think it helps to humanize health officers to telegraph that they're really struggling with these decisions. They don't take them lightly, and also that they have the support of consultation of a number of other people. Well, they're not acting alone and imposing these orders. Do you know of any health officers who have decided to leave? Ah, the job as a result of this because it doesn't feel like you know, the virus is not going away. Assume as many of us would have liked, and people are going to have to make policies and an implement policies until we've got some clarity on where what the next phase of this is so have folks that you know, decided to leave their jobs as a result. Absolutely. I think the count is up near 30. Now, health officers who have either resigned or been forced out by their elected officials since the start of the disease pandemic because of the politicization of their orders. And that includes Oxiris Barbeau, who was the New York City health commissioner. It includes Nicole Quick, the health commissioner of Orange County are most affected County in California. In terms of covert cases it includes West Virginia health officer for the state had the slam so lots of folks who are dealing very, very difficult situation simply, it's just not reasonable to expect them to go on month after month. In this kind of climate, especially when they're not getting any support from other officials mentioned Oxygen's Barbeau and I know that was a big issue here in New York, particularly because she clashed with Mayor Bill de Blasio. Are we seeing a lot of that? A CZ? Well, just internally among Officers and public health officials, and also just, you know, the other officials that they're dealing with. It feels like I don't know if that was very specific to New York City politics or if that's also happening across the board. I think that is happening in a lot of communities. Yes, where you have a schism between elected branches of government that represent communities that have a particular ideological bent and help officers who have been serving you know for many, many administrations many many years and you are You're acting on the science a TTE this point of the pandemic. People are fed up with the science. They want a balance of between health concerns and economic and other concerns. And again. Some health officers have been very good at explaining how public health orders balanced. Those concerns and others who are maybe less transparent, really have been confronted by a lot of attacks from Ah, elsewhere in government. But, you know, responding to local political pressures themselves you mentioned earlier. We we are having to differentiate between threatening health officers and health officials and making and threatening frontline workers like doctors and nurses. But Our doctors and nurses subject to any type of politicization and threats right now, because of the role that they what they could possibly represent, or have they gotten off Have they sort of not been in the cross hairs? If you will. You know, I'm not aware of those kinds of attacks. I think it's more just that What we hear from them is the difficulty that they have in their personal lives Because people know they work with sick people. They don't want to be around him. They don't want to be around their kids. So it's the usual story in any pandemic, where You're the child of somebody who's working with an affected patient. Nobody wants their kid in school with you. I think that causes some difficulties for them, but it's a different quality and caliber of attack than what we've been talking about with public health officers. Michelle Mellow is a professor of law at Stanford Law School and a professor of medicine at Stanford University. School of Medicine. Michelle. Thanks so much, Thank you.

And close contact with others. The measure which was passed with a thirteen eight vote was not supported by any of the Republican members. Well, that's good that the Republicans Nevada still have a backbone president trump then promptly got Nevada to trend on twitter. He said this in an illegal late night coup Nevada's clubhouse governor. Made it impossible for Republicans to win the state president trump wrote on twitter. Post Office could never handle the traffic of male in votes without preparation using Cova distill the state see you in court. The president is one hundred percent right on this. If we allow mandatory mail in voting to happen unchallenged, we are headed for the biggest disaster of an election in our lifetime. There is a reason why the Democrats want mail in voting it is ripe for fraud. People might say, well, Charlie what about absentee voting that is always a small sliver of the amount of votes in the absentee ballots are always the majority of the voter fraud claims as they are. In some states, absentee ballots are anywhere between five to ten percent. Sometimes, there is lows two percent in states like Oregon, which is complete and Total Democrat control. The only way to vote you cannot show up on election day in Oregon. It is all vote by mail and it starts in early October leading up to election day. Because of this Democrats US organizing tactics to be able to do a thing called ballot harvesting ballot harvesting is how in Orange County California Republicans wants controlled five five US congressional seats in Orange County after the last midterm election. Republicans lost all five. Now Republicans were leading some of those seats such as young Kim on election night. But then all of a sudden new ballots were found. Mail in ballots were discovered. And the Republican candidates. Fell behind and behind and eventually lost the race. The way that voting should work is through independent certification with election judges in decentralized fashion to have the most people centered citizen-focused way of voting. What do I mean by that? It means that when you have a local precinct that is in charge of the election for that one precinct, not the post office of the Postal Service you think called election judges, those election judges. Are Bound by the law and they usually represent both political parties Republican. Democrat, to make sure that there's no funny business now, it's not a perfect system voter fraud absolutely exists but a vast majority of voter fraud is almost always voter registration fraud and ballot fraud with absentee voting. So, if we admit that the Democrats are pushing for mail and voting harder than anything they've pushed for in recent memory, the question should be why. They say it safety. Mean that's such nonsense. Worried about people gathering. Then shouldn't they cancel? The local marijuana dispensary or the casinos in Nevada. In Nevada, you are able to go to Caesar's palace in Nevada, you're able to go to the Venetian in Nevada, you can go to a local restaurant. and. They'd say that's perfectly fine if you wear a mask and socially distance. But it's not okay to be able to go to a local polling place. It's not okay to be able to wait six

"Okay back to the beaches. So Orange County decided. They weren't going to close their beaches but then the governor stepped in. Why did he feel the need to do that? This is actually the second time he's done this. And it's all Orange County's foucault twice. Everyone got serious and California March sixteenth. That's when Newsom said okay. This is what we're GONNA DO GARCETTI whatnot. So what do people do that weekend? They all flocked to the beach so I remember turning on locally here the NBC affiliate Huntington Beach Packed with people absolutely packed with people in March. Yeah this is March. Yeah it's like the weekend of March Twenty First Newsom saw that. Garcetti saw that newsome's like nope. We're GONNA start shutting down the parking lots for state beaches and that's exactly what happened to like sort of tell people to stay away. Then though California went through about a month of gloomy weather so it was raining like it was a unseasonably large Raynham out for this time of year in California. So people mostly stayed home. There was no problem. The Problem Gustavo says started two weekends ago. That's when the weather began to clear up and once again people started going back to the beach. Maybe you saw some of the images on twitter. Newsom sees photos again. Of course he gets angry like no. I'm GONNA shut down the beaches at first. He he wanted to shut down all the beaches in California but then he decided to just shut down Orange County and that's where the real anger came out. Even look so you think it was kind of petty of him. Oh petty punitive at the end. It was punitive some like he got so Wang because remember. This was the second time this happened. Orange County the first time was in mid March and the march sixteenth. Two weekend are rather march. Twenty first weekend where you saw these people in Orange County walk into the Beach. Now you have a second time. It's how you say it in Spanish Reagan. Yondo an English. You would say school. That's what it is. A new some came off as a school. No one wants to be seen as a scored. You WanNa be seen as authoritative coming off as a school. There's just like dude. What's your issue? Man Like started started slip into coastal orange county lingo but literally. That's what when that happened. I'm like Oh man you're you do not know what you just did Newsom does new somehow beef with the. Oc personal beef. Yes I got. It is civil war between Sacramento and Orange County so when new some decided to shut down the beaches the city of Huntington Beach and the city of Dana Point sued the state of California ever since then now The city of Newport beach is trying to sue the state and federal corporate. This was at St Court when it came to Newsom so there is emnity. There is just absolute loathing for new some from the more conservative elements of of of Orange County. In fact that's what they're calling him down the Republican Party here in Orange County King Gavin King newsom. I heard another name for him. Which was someone like rented? A small plane flew over the beach and they were calling him. Gruesome newsom okay. That's funny. That is funny but yeah I mean they're overreacting. Is it tyranny? No is that punitive absolutely. There has to be that middle ground. I mean really. Lisa Bartlett seems to be that middle ground of saying. Hey what you're doing to us is wrong but there has to be another way and let let's have a conversation about it but of course then. That's why you started. See like you saw. What was the estimate in Huntington beach protests like two thousand three thousand people and again not all of them were locals but the locals of course supported it but then that becomes that flashpoint for the people who are tired of these stay at home ordinance or edicts by new some and other people across Southern California. Of course they gonNA flock there. I mean I was reading some protesters who talked to the media and said that these gatherings at the beaches they reminded them of the early days of the tea party movement. Does that make sense to you? The only thing I would say is that there doesn't seem to be At least yet it doesn't seem to be Like movement going forward from this there was barely any protests there hasn't been many protests week like if it really was a movement people would be protesting more and more and more the anger is definitely there though and this is where it's this is where it really gets interesting in. Orange County because the Republican Party in Orange County this year. They're going to have to play catch up like they definitely wounded dog in a corner wolfing a corner and the ready last shot but they really had no. They're they're just yet. The Democrats are they are now outnumbering. Republicans at least in the official voter registration drives they had a trump. Of course. Who knows what's going to happen. Nationally but locally you know trump was not very popular again. He Lost Twenty Sixteen. But with this issue Governor Newsom shutting down the Orange County beaches and only the orange county beaches now. The Republican Party is vitalized. And the way I have not seen it in like Jeez in years like not even two thousand sixteen or twenty eighteen and so they're going to try to ride this issue all the way to election day governor like newsome is doing this balancing act. He can see that if he doesn't start opening the state back up again especially those beaches. His political opponents will have a pretty potent weapon to use against him but if he does open the beaches and people get sick. He could get the blame for that to which may be why earlier this week. Governor NEWSOM announced baby steps towards opening those beaches. Back up again. He is feeling the pressure it. Because you see this like the cases aren't going down the trump administration just said hey remember when we said forty to sixty thousand people are GONNA die. Well now we think it's probably going to be a hundred thousand so this current. Iris is not going anywhere. But you also cannot keep people at home without now. You can't keep them at home period. I mean you could give them a universal basic income but people want to go out people. WanNa go back to how it was. Even though it's not going to so new some I think is just saying okay. That's what he's doing. His staggered rollout. Where this I know? It's going to be the second phase now like you have bookstores and clothing boutiques and most businesses. Basically you can open but you can only have curbside service which is kind of weird. I don't know how that's GonNa work out but people are not gonNA take it even in Orange County so in San Clemente this past week and you had a restaurant that just opened they said okay. Yeah we're going to do social distancing. Yeah no we're not going to and so Local news they've been like showing Patios packed inside packed the county health officials. They've gone down there to check and see and tell them like. Hey you're not supposed to do this. But they're not really trying to enforce anything will new some even more punitive because of that. We'll see but again. No one envies newsom right now. Let's put it that way. Yeah I mean listening to you talk. It feels like it's a damn that's about to break. You know I mean there have been reports of counties like Murdoch County which is a rural county. That's basically just said we're not going to be doing this anymore. We're not going to be doing this. Stay at home order anymore and I read one piece of analysis that said listen. The bigger threat. Isn't these protesters. It's politicians basically pushing back on new Simmons saying we're not going to implement what you're telling us to do at the that's a long game of course with politicians. Yeah Mode Rock County all the way. All the way up in northern California very rural hasn't had a single case and the new hearing this so because if he really was a king he would say no. Everyone goes on my schedule. So he's as what he's saying and what people are mocking him for his like data. I'm seeing the data. So He's acknowledging okay rural counties you could be on a or other places that have a certain policy or plan to get out of this. You have more leeway than say Los Angeles or San Francisco or Santa Clara County. Where San Jose is Gopher? But you're also damned if you do and you're damned if you don't have you seen more fatalities come out of this and you see that huge Like a second wave happened. Will people blame some tell them? Hey you opened up too early or will they go. After troub- it remains to be seen. It's GonNa be interesting.

"The reason Gustavo's he's Orange County as this weather for the rest of the country is that it contains conflicting political forces all bound up tightly together for years. Orange County was known as a Republican stronghold and some ways it maintains a strong Republican flavor but during the two thousand eighteen midterms. The county flipped blue making national headlines so here. Democrats are ascendant. But they're still finding their way and then when the krona virus hit these liberal and Conservative politicians. They all to work together. Okay I want to go back to April. Just sort of explain how fraught the decision to close the beaches in Orange County was because I went back and I watched this meeting of the Board of supervisors and Orange County and one of these guys. She says to the group listen. A heatwave is coming. We know that the beaches are going to be slammed. And we know that the beaches all around us are going to be shut down so people are going to come from other places here. That's a bad idea. We just we need to shut them down. What do you think happened? But they weren't shutdown. Of course yeah. You're you're referring to Lisa Bartlett. Lisa Bartlett is one of. She's bore South Orange County so she represents some of these cities like Laguna Beach. Down in Dana Point. She's a Republican. In fact four fifths of the board. There's five supervisors in Orange County. One of them's a democrat. A basically a moderate others are maybe not Trumpian Republicans will one or two of them are but Lee Bartlett's more moderate People even Democrats in Orange County. They respect her especially for her issues on trying to deal with the homelessness which is another huge topic Orange County so she got it but although the way she put it also you could tell a little bit of the provincialism in Orange County because the beaches in La County and San Diego County. We're going to be close. So what she's saying is We're GONNA have the rest of the world coming into Orange County. We gotTA keep those people out. We gotta just leave it for locals. And of course she was overruled. The the Board of supervisors. Now let's have the whole world. Come if they want well. It's funny because like her motion didn't even get a second like no one. No one would consider it. All the other supervisors just were like. Yeah no we're not GONNA do that. No I mean because they've been chafing the thing with Orange County. Although now nationally people say oh yeah. It's Blue Orange county's blue now. No no seventy five percent of elected positions in Orange County are still republicans. It's interesting listening to you because I'm thinking of like a tree where what you're saying is like the Republican Party in Orange County has these deep roots and in the midterm elections. The Democrats were may be able to like chop some of the branches off of the tree. But there's still roots there it can still grow back. Oh did that You know you use botany. I use animals I use. The Republican Party is just like an angry dog a rabid dog. That's ready to bite back in like snarling ready to go after these democratic POPs. So you're saying it's like a delicate and people made something out of Orange County flipping blue but this is actually a pretty delicate flip it. Yes because you don't the Democrats don't have those routes like historically the only city that orange that the Democratic Party Orange County ever dominated was the city of Santa Ana which is one of the most Latino cities in the United States but other than that like those. The school boards. The water boards the city. Council's they're all still mostly majority Like Super Majority Republican Cross Orange.

I am absolutely and tell someone before we started talking about the The political goings on the. Oh see I wanted to talk a little bit about your background because it's It really informs a lot of what you do Your board and Nicaragua. But your your family left during the civil war there in one thousand nine hundred seventy ETA believe. You're you're young girl. You're about eight or nine years old. Correct I yeah. I was six years old when I came here six years old. Okay explain how that that shaped your your family came to Miami First and then your dad heard of a job Cross the country in San Pedro in shipyards and a take us through in your early immigrant experience and growing up like that so yes in. My country I clutter civil war. A decatur you know. My parents struggled and taking me to the supermarket because I would sing the revolutionary songs and that where the crime And and I was too young for them to explain or you know So it's really hard to take me out because that that was just my thing and You know that that shapes me you you know that shaped me just by having a voice and being involved in the political process That in itself that small little Story there but you know also I have the same story as many of our immigrant families struggled with acclimation struggled with finances The language Not only only myself my parents you know obviously my parents But you know unable to My father was unable to put his profession. Ought to work in the United States. went from one low wage job to the next and You know well doesn't Nicaragua. Your father was an economist My father was an economist who worked for Somoza and obviously We we have have to leave And here he came He worked as a jeweller in in a in a mall in in Miami and and We headed towards California To figure out if we can my father can get along Sherman job and unfortunately We traveled through You know Through the United States To you know You know by by the roads and my my family had an accident president in in Texas and my my mom and my siblings were hospitalized on our way here And unfortunately like driver Richard Pitcher. Mom's car yes yes a a drunk truck driver hit my mom car and As a result he lost the opportunity he had longshoremen instead Went to work as a In the graveyard shift as a security guard So during the day he would go to English English classes To figure out how to how to get better and at night he would work He was a sole breadwinner. Because there were too many of us For the child. Care and You know struggled throughout I entered the workforce very early often had two or three jobs to help my parents. It's out and as when when you're thirteen. You're working your washing dishes. Yeah yes I. I worked in retail and In the in the restaurant industry as well as a dishwasher a buster a you know also hosting And and then finally when I was eighteen I land union job I was a front desk clerk at a hotel And that you know not only gave me my first pair of glasses glasses. But also the best meal of the of the day and the ability to only have to work one job And that was really revolutionary for me and began to stand up or a better ship based on my seniority and understood how to use my voice then and not only use it for myself and my colleague a dishwashers and cooks and and servers and I became the leader of the workers a very short period of time at the hotel and the Union Union sought me out hired me at eighteen. I started working in the Union office. as a receptionist answered phone and for the next eight years I worked worked my way through every single position the union until I decided to run for the top office and at that point I was the first Latina An immigrant to head the Union In Orange County Today back then it was a you know It was stand alone now. Work home and We merged with Los Angeles but back then we were only Orange County And so you know Being a a Labor leader of of low wage workers of immigrant workers Young and and the woman was very difficult. It was difficult to lead at. That time came in and In an environment that was very anti immigrant and anti worker in Orange County right and You remain you're still The co-president of unite here The the huge union down there and actually statewide So let's talk about the OC now. We're all surprised. Surprised that In in two thousand eighteen when Democrats flipped four house seats there The Orange County. Everybody he knows this. Is You know. This is a Reagan's Rate the heart of Reagan a conservatism for many years it had been a Republican stronghold on hold And that changed What his was we all know the movie business the sequels always harder to do And Republicans this is still very as we've talked before. This is still a very republican place. Isn't it crazy on the numbers here but Republican it's still hold like what seventy five percent of the of the seats throughout Orange County. Is that accurate just around absolutely it is we are. We've got you know we began our transformation were continuing through. Were in the early stages of that. We've been building for a long period of time and the grass roots. You know a lot of community or organizations have been you know registering voters you know. Speaking to to to to to people one person spend time Immigrant organizations have been organizing there for Awhile and in twenty two sixteen. We Want Hillary Clinton in Orange County In two thousand eighteen we turned four congressional four congressional seats blue and and our confirmation continues Four months. Let's go over overtook the Republican registration or four or five months ago. And now we're one point in the lead over fifteen thousand voter registration and We Are we are continuing to move that forward and working really hard to make sure that people Volvo. That's the biggest. That's the biggest thing right. We are we WANNA move every Democrat in Orange County to vote And so we are. You know we've built an infrastructure we're continuing to build that infrastructure throughout Orange County through our different club job so are different nonprofits Like minded organizations who are day in and day out. You know figuring out how to Speak to people and have them use their voice which is the most important thing we have. What will make this harder this time around in two thousand twenty? Will this be harder. A conventional wisdom is that it will be easier because the presidential year is Is a friendlier turnout for Democrats in is that the case in the OC well trump is Been you know a a blessing for Democrats in Orange County because He's turned that apathy and turn people all our way so people have rejected That rhetoric very strongly And we've we've seen a whole lot of suburban women Come our way. Hey and be active So in some cases it will be easier by having him on the ballot but in other cases it'll be You know more difficult so we are not you know Taking anything for granted we are mobilizing every single activists and Duplicating that as much as possible slums are growing We started six different Club in twenty nineteen Not Not only area based clubs but issue based clubs That are all going to work to make sure that we get out the vote and not only the primary but the a Ah but November general.

There had been rumors that Lucy was having an affair with someone and then we started putting the dots that possibly someone was. Joe Love. I saw his name come up on her phone when she picked up. She was always a little giggly Also know that she likes attention. Lizzie and Joe would later deny having an affair but the two become close business partners for several months. They've spent their weekends together. Northern California laying plans for new business. They've launched called love livestock whereas with the other victims.

Tom Because Jesse was freaking out but moulder never does make it home that night instead lizzy ends up here at mission hospital where according according to detective Moroccan checks under the Behavioral Health Wing.

His because she was trying to lay the groundwork for some sort of insanity defense she knew that the walls were closing in on her. She was caught and after her voluntary. Ellen Terry Seventy two hours stame this he makes another surprising visit case seemed to always Explode as I was leaving to meet meet with Detective Munro Qian. It's the end of a very long day packed up my stuff. And I'm walking out the door and then walks lizzy moulder. And and she says she wants to talk to me and provide a statement. Here's investigation isn't complete but Baraki and wants to seize his chance to lockdown moulders story. Show the quick thinking detective improvisers. So what I did is I created some boxes some some phony files and I wrote the name moulder on the outside nine during the interview. She kept looking behind me at the boxes. I think she thought that one I had were bank. Record's real estate files and all of the things that I eventually learned during the course of this investigation with the evidence seemingly stacked against her lizzy argues that she's the victim. According to Lizzie the one hundred eighty five thousand in Donner's from Jack Wines. Was a reward for Lizzie. Doing all the work You me he said you need you. Would while molder tries to rationalize her crimes for body language betrays her with Lindsey. I would ask her question and she would shift in her chair and sometimes she would cross her arms. Look down Sometimes she would get emotional. She was putting on a very amateur performance. Formats and detective isn't buying it. Especially as Lizzie recounts her devotion to Jay Abraham they say. You don't want him to Lizzie. Put her head down. Started to cry and I looked at her very closely and I noticed that there were no tears coming out unswayed. Detective Moroccan soon has moulder on her the heels throughout the interview.

From prestigious Pepperdine University is a sham and the moulders don't own their beautiful house in Laguna Beach which they rented the biggest surprise. Is that while running her fake accounting practice moulder there has been holding down a full time job selling fertilizer for an agricultural company or as detective. Moroccan puts it so Lizzie.

Most damaging fraud is her income tax payments scheme but in a stroke of irony visit never were reported her stolen income as a tax cut. And you would think you you need to report all your business. Income tax returns but Lizzie. Didn't I said Hey. Declare charge is tax. Fried special agent. Kim takes the case to assistant. US Attorney Scott Tinley. Who was motivated to prosecute prosecute bulger after hearing the victims gut wrenching stories? You hear in fraud cases a lot about conman people who gain the confidence of their victims. And that's what she did. Literally a victim saying lizzy was my best friend and it makes you a little more motivated on the case because you feel like these are people who a truly been victimized at their core not just in their bank account with a each victim lizzy customizes her scheme to target her clients vulnerabilities hundred abilities they were preyed upon. They were preyed upon by somebody who they thought was their friend who they could trust and it could have happened. Anybody and investigators discovered a common thread in Lucy's con. The victims all suspect she had an accomplice. oftentimes keep these fraud froth alive to keep them going. You need an accomplice to help you to validate that. The fraudster is not stealing.

Turn their voices into votes registering about seventy five percent young people people of Color Women and the rising American electorate who need to be empowered. And that's that's mostly who was registering here today on campus right. Yeah you can see that. And and and so people know besides how satisfying this is as native people.

Thomas Interview outdoor athletes and luminaries about their lives. And what they do to stay sane through it all. Don't WanNa ever not feel free and when I'm in the mountains I feel totally free. Check it out wherever you get your podcast wild west. And here's more of my conversation conversation with Jason Berlin. So want to someone to talk to you. I canvas all over the country when I break whenever we go out and reporting trips because you get to see unvarnished or here unvarnished opinions from voters and plus you get to You get to talk with a wide variety of people and I got us have never seen A folks as I was listening to earlier like you and like Rebecca who your exuberance is over the charts but it's a philosophical philosophical difference with how you canvas explain what it is. You're not a random quote table center you don't sit there and Bina table and say hey one vote so would I explain your philosophy awesome. Yeah so so. We're an anti table organization. Yeah we don't exactly we don't sit at a table and wait for people to ask us to dance. We walk around with a clipboard in a smile talked everyone we can. Also you know this is. This is voter registration unshackled. We are not a five zero one c three like really every voter registration restauration organization that I know of where five twenty seven. Explain what that means for the for those who don't know the the newest code as well as absolutely five a one. C three is legally bound to be nonpartisan as five twenty seven. We are not so we can have as our slogan as our mission registered. Democrats Save the world. Now everybody nobody do nothing and that is what you say when you approach people with when you go up to people on the on the street here and at Saddleback college what do you say You know we yeah. We don't say are you registered about we say. Excuse me Miss. Can you help save the world from trump or can devote just trying to get rid of trump one voter at a time. You you know one at a time. I enunciate better but is that you have a pretty high success ratio. It's you no we do we do it really. It shows people the steaks and whatever you say no matter no matter what how you're approaching people to to twenty people will ignore you uh or or they'll be registered they'll be international students but they will be lying and say that they're already registered actors as we were talking about earlier. It's not a accounted for. You have to have a certain amount of patients when you do this. You definitely definitely so yeah no matter what you do there will be a lot of most of the people will walk by your sifting through the people. We can't empower to find the ones we can so you know And we do have a much higher success rate than other organizations because we safe things like can you help me. Give trump you know and people people a you know when you find one of people they'll spend on their heels and say. Oh my God give me that. CLIPBOARD I need to sign that. I don't care what it is. Thank God you're here. I'm going nuts with this guy you know and you make a connection and then hopefully you register them as Democrat vote by Mail on the spot but even if you don't you have a conversation and they walk away. Knowing that March third is the primary Mike Levin is the guy they got to vote for or Katie Porter. Yeah exactly and And also the leave knowing that it's okay to be a Democrat in public here and say that we're Democrat that it's okay to care about healthcare and like other people you know and it's okay to not be racist or sexist. It's even okay to believe in science you you know controversial things like that so here on the campus most the folks are registering were registering as nonpartisan. It was interesting to hear the young young people say because it's I some of the people I talk to. Their parents are Republicans number one. And there's several very honest I don't need it they said I don't know much about either party or I don't trust either party or I'm still trying to figure it out myself so awesome. Is that what you're finding typically with younger voters. Yeah we register in general About about eighty six percent Democrat about fourteen percent. No party preference really. Yeah Yeah Yeah today at least watching me. I didn't get get that high. But May we'll see when we tabulate everyone's results together And it does vary from place to place we do need every goodhearted independent independent. We can find you know and you know the word independent to someone who's going to college. Sounds very appealing independent. I make my own choices. No no label all can describe the complexity that is me so we tried to let people know that's fine first of all no judgmental you know no no judgment but but also let them know that you know if they're registered Democrat Doug about it in the mail where they can choose which you know they can vote for which Democrat is going to go up against trump trump. Yeah in the primary. We don't even mention primary. Just let them know you know that they can. They'll be able to choose. And you said something really interesting at gray. GimMe Great Perspective actor for for canvassers Of all types and I know we're entering canvas season is at the turn of the year and Is that You know as as you alluded to earlier you may see twenty people or approach twenty twenty five people over a couple of our shift and think of this not as a basketball score but as a hockey score explain. Explain what you mean by that. It's like yeah so what you land right right. So yeah the scale of success array right when you're out here for a little over two hours If you you if you registered nobody but you talked to twenty people.

"With nothing I've played don't happen played the we sent him the song and it had the sign basin he actually cool me to find out how I wanted to do in terms of keeping this I'm basing on not because he was quite like how is in there I wonder if we can have the digital base and the am meet the live human base working together and I was like I'd like to know we'll see if we can o'connor he came in open minded and we quickly realized they was better with just him than the sense but he was he called me to say what should we do with that because I'm interested to know us the email is already a bass player but obviously it's a case of either switching owls seeing how it goes but he actually picked up on that and we had the conversation and it worked out great for the best what would you say what would you consider your influences throughout everything general I don't think we ever talked about this before maybe no I feel like as a child I was very open to Konovalov different types SUV music and I was inspired by bands and I played the drums so I was listening to Weezer and two and green day and to put to put like a corner of those type that type of music of a young age I really loved and then there was this thing now that's why cool music CDs whether he would have just is like a compilation of pop music slyke but they would stay would have like homecoming by Connie on that will they'd have like atomic kitten or like those those the PLO or dislike goals allowed there's every sort of side of pop music there was two working on the radio could go on this compilation CD and I think it was just exposed to a lot of different stuff and you I soon realized I didn't really realize until maybe a couple of years ago but you use like certain things you'll be drawn to certain things some places resin thank you all don't and it's very easy as haunted like fake enthusiasm actually if you feel it feel somewhere or you hear something that you're not actually into so there's certain things that this war was withdrawn to things not necessarily who they were by would never be like I love the arts everything by them is great it's like I find that hard even today to say I love everything from one there's a really small handful of people who've ever done that for me but I found people like Connie and people like stevie wonder young age and his discography was one of the first things I've really found like so many different styles but just using a lot of the same codes but so many different chords in different keys and just realize what kind of just what genius was but then at the same time at school people would show me Eminem and Jay Z and have like show me a MP three player in the flesh and someone had I had MP3 player with one Eminem Song One Jay z song and I think it was I think it was FAC by eminem unfortunately went on zing really like that was like one of the first repsonse heard and then I believe it was warm can say or something from the blackout I think which was about that time I was just kind of like didn't know that even wasn't that was just my first introduction so I kind of feel if I was just gravitated towards was poem front of me but then there was so much putting I didn't have to get into these other bands from put bands from the UK and stuff certain things I was into certain songs but is the law of course I think a lot of theory and certain vocal melodies and stuff actually that I wasn't always driven melody sometimes they'll just be the cause and it'll be a vocalist doing something they actually didn't really Eh blockages point out some bits loved about it mainly music actually honestly I haven't really had a lot of a belying has really influenced by films and stuff because I'm not I I do enjoy watching films like a lot of people but I think most of what truly truly resonates of me his either just like people saying woods that make me want to go and do something or real like sounds Sonics and cools in music from any type of person any type of band just the law of influence is really that could go on a long list but the I think when reading put it down to just what resonates with me I think that's that's all and I just I love music as well so probably helps in when did you start experimenting with cords moved from drums to to keys I actually probably experiment with the keys before the could I did buy probably experimented with keys before drums and was playing like coldplay songs on the piano a young age whilst learning drums but there was a point when I was at school I went to a place called the Brit school and when I arrived there on my first day I'm at Geiko in who played the drums and I came as a drummer as well and in the year that was like four or five people that play drums and they had everyone perform a a set like a story like a solo performance on the first day so we can show the year what we did and I remember watching Jim play drums I just thought I don't think I met a drummer I think he is a drummer I think I'm someone who is competent on drums and I love drums I also have spent I've spent time doing a bit of keys I spend time doing this like singing and stuff and Jim I'm assuming having not not knowing him at the time I was like I guess it's just spent his whole life doing drums because he it sounds like someone who's put so much into the drums which I've account catch up on that and there's so many people out there you know is very instant like well that's probably not my cooling thing that's his only all someone else of that saw and what happened was I probably that sparked me to think that I could just do something else and people were putting me on piano guitar I don't have to be much of a guitarist that can just be someone playing music through a using a guitar so I can't play really a guitar solo competently wouldn't be a drama didn't want to be a drama would rather be something else and also had lot on my mind I wanted to talk about and came at the right time together and I was like whoa can I do let's just you know found a way spent the summer in someone's house just recording very immature in a good way and very diy and just yeah just what came right place right time as lucky as early on in my life to be honest and cool yeah how old are you win the first thing you put you released your first piece of me music I think I'd just turned seventeen I think or just a few months after being seventeen on soundcloud yes soundcloud it's been good to you those yet they really it was the oddest does I wonder if the if timing had anything to do with it as well 'cause I feel like when I heard about you I was listening to a lot of music on soundcloud and I feel lately I haven't been listening to as much on soundcloud us well I haven't I definitely have it's interesting it's like I wonder how that works it's just fascinating listen to music on at the moment I've been listening mostly the like classical music and jazz from all different places but not not so much usually the only the only new music that I listen to is win a friend tells me listen something should and for some reason I went from phase of not listening to much pop to listening to be much more hip hop much more new hip hop which is really enjoying yeah great fuel cycle it's an interesting moment hip hop because I'm hearing I'm hearing usually the thing that most excites me about music is when it sounds like something I haven't heard for Emma's really surprising yet I'm hearing some hip hop now that is not so surprising in some ways it's ordinary yet it's a very very very good version of ordinary and I like it so that's that's a little bit of a new experience right now for me great I do love some new representing love some new rap and there's definitely the element of it's not necessarily surprising.

Lc that Matt she's the contours of a driver's hands wherever they're placed connecting driver and vehicle like never before discover what amazing ideas you'll inspire next at nexus dot com slash curiosity we're back with REX and rick talking about the L. Face to face so did that one come about that was actually the first thing I made on my laptop often my loss album and it was the poll distant keys part is just like the sine waves doing the really simple to Code Paul and actually existed on my laptop for a long time before I figured out why I wanted to say on figured out where I want to take him musically it was always just this thing between two calls and had a few I lines on top of each other and just a few bits of it really and and what happened was over time it's kind of about it's the song itself is about feeling like You want to be back home with the person you as you wanna be with an missing the person you love and feeling like you're stuck in some kind of situation elsewhere geographically and literally that somewhere else where you don't really WanNa be with people who you don't really want to be with you and it's literally I had to get to have that situation which was bigger than just that one day feeding that thing and having phone calls where we we both wake up with both on the phone with each other but she's in bed with both and but she is the morning for her and it's I'm about to go sleep whatever's really surreal when you will just like really angry but really really missing someone at the same time and feeling emotional and and I had to have that before I actually wrote the whole song in one go lyrically one of the only times that really happened and ended up fitting it to the original the project was not meant to be it was the original instruments was just for for whatever I was gonNA ride over it but oversee its place and but when you wrote the words to do right the words with the cords in mind or did you right right more like a poem and then realize that they worked over the chords the latter I I wrote them as a so you wrote the verse Free we have been found that it worked over this music he I imagined to be some kind of one twenty one ten tempo of just folks the floor and I can imagine it but I didn't I didn't hear those chords necessarily and just fit them I I yeah pretty much what you just said had earlier and then fit those things else interesting and when did beat come the beat was actually in the original logic fall where it was just some logic drums the which is putting on the keyboard it sounded like like I could imagine the beat being there from the beginning but I I it can sound like that but it doesn't show happen sounded like that so I was curious yeah no that was that was always there from the beginning button ever was never meant to come in until it was always meant to come in where it came in to us but still I feel like that beats implied through the whole thing I feel that energy when the beat comes in it doesn't feel like he s it feels like dramatic because it's a beat back but I feel like we're already in that rhythm yet clearly you prepared absolutely that's great so the musically it didn't change much from the original oh idea not a lot that was what it was a lot chipping away adding things that we felt like within the studio having like different you know mandatory abridging the idea of having the strings they're not in like there were things that conversation is that me and Ben have for a long time and actually on the whole yeah pretty much came in and some way and and was done over two or three days first time got got its with some point where pretty much sounded a rough version of this pretty much but then there was love detail sales that we wanted to go into overtime and changing something bits and is a kind of haunts remembering wakes it's almost like it's a blow of like it was always a from the day that I figured out that poem would work over this thing flits kind of just since then it's like well I mean I just put it there and did my best he did his best and that was it's hard to really lane completely understood I understand in the in that moment of the burst of creativity of like discovery a lot of things happened it quickly and sometimes I know in my experiences sometimes I'll hear something after we recorded it and I don't even remember that it happened because it's you kind of in this zone things are just happening and then afterwards you look back like wow that's incredible yeah I know I was involved but I don't really remember how that happened exactly yeah very exciting thrilling feeling like almost being in an altered state yeah yeah you're like yeah do you do you feel that way often happens it's it's I feel a lot of time in the studio were waiting for that to happen I don't think about it as waiting but there's a lot of times when sort of we know that there's something that needs to happen kind waiting until the stars align and then all of a sudden it starts bening and then you it sort of feels almost out of control that it just this momentum starts I always when when I realized this happen opening I always try to relax and just think okay just hope that it goes as long as it can go yeah just stay out of the way of this momentum it's arrived ah within the air definitely I have a few times but it's it's you would think that you always had an intention but you never sought to explain the process but in the mid you can just look back at why originally was trying to do and go will I did achieve that or I didn't but still great and it's better for and we found something else that I wasn't expecting it's hard sometimes pin down the moment in the middle absolutely absolutely and Wendy Pino play on it he played on probably three quarters the way through making it so is warranty practically like it just had a like a synth bass a think before that was just kind of driving on like halftime of the drums and in and I think what happened was oh speaking to someone who said you should try and not do everything yourself and you should try and invest in people who are really great at Croft because if they spent their whole life doing that one thing then you probably you on paper they can do it they do it the best or whatever it's like compared to you your competent I'm competent on Bass and there's a Lotta played the bass on but it was not because I didn't necessarily in my head feel if they deserved like the you know wasn't all about the base thing those other songs but that one for me and Ben and I had a conversation where it was like do we just you know off soon after that conversation about you should invest in other people who do not do everything yourself I just said why don't we get Pino to play on the song I think joked about it before and it was like imagine if he would ever do such a thing you realize these people are around and they actually played you know the people when you ask and it was very very special moment for me so it's just a big fan of him and his work and having to do it so quickly and yeah I know you've wasn't yeah that's fantastic do play him the original bass part did you just play on the track.

"That's actually stop and talk about it a little bit completely not what I was expecting at all know much upbeat much more I'll use the word poppy in a melodic way she'll whereas I feel like you're you're the other music of yours that I've heard before was more more about the style and less about the melody and now it's really has a different energy but it still has the vibes of the original or alcohol it it's not moutainous but emotion of the original style show but in in a completely different context it's really surprising and refreshing also erected that way I definitely I definitely feel as if it was melody Dr- like the song was not alertly developed to write the beginning in in existed for a week or so as just to the melody and the structure and the chords existing as of as a thing and before the lyrics at and so it kind of just like that was already very much so solid and I've been listening to that voice memo of dislike mumbling it over and over and stuff and it's kind of like I was waymo based within the just the song in the mandate yet she I think primarily and it wasn't necessarily about why I had to say first off so I think that I'm glad that case through also really loved there's there's a part towards the beginning of the song when the beat drops out and the the sound of the vocal really changes it subtle but when it changes it gets much more intimate and it's a it's a beautiful moment yes it's really like tasteful productions yes thank you that's me and my my good friend Bazzi as well as just me and him in a room he mixed my loss album he makes this one too but he he became pretty much my my rock just like my my co producer my partner along the hallway and he did a lot sonically an taught me a lot actually sonically just explain why things he felt like things sounded bad like this didn't sound is good like this and actually informed me along that kind of stuff as well and I'm now allows me to go and be like oh I think the second Bush should be really up close vocal comes up and it becomes more intimate and you can talk about having to feed level but he can just achieve fuel refresh thank you play this next one unlimited says can you can you send in a pad and a pen thanks okay this next one is the one piano felt like he deserved to be down I found everything that is everything aw.

It's really really magical yeah. It's so great because you're just saying like this one pillar as has education. You're seeing that you're starting from the very beginning in the elementary and you're like you're saying you're going all the way through and you're setting them up with if they don't have exposure took or if they do additional experiences to set them up for success. That's so great. I love that share with me. Some of the other pillars that you guys are working on well. One of the things that we are excited about is I work around Financial Stability Okay and so we have measure we everything we do is measure with than outside index so they're not the soup parks measurements like. Oh look what we did right. This is for accountability so we have a financial stability is a big area for families and we had a goal to prove that by twenty five percent in ten years and that was also achieved in five years amazing and is that just Orange County is all just orange county all all that's going on in Orange County and so in that particular case we know that certainly some things have happened in the market in terms of you know increased salaries and all that but also we do things like we we leverage leverage things like the earned income tax credit programs so that is a way that we trained five hundred volunteers to help low income people most who are earning twenty two thousand in a year think about that living in Orange County but help get them get their tax refunds back because they have to be working to earn to you without filing as well all right we help with the filing and we them get that earned income tax credit back which could be three to five thousand dollars which might be the difference of them getting out of debt and on their way okay to prosperity and that has a multiplier that's crazy because we may be invest seven hundred thousand in that year a year of the so fewer donating. I know you are so thank you yeah that if you're an investing in our work we pull back into the community twenty one million dollars getting these amazing rate of return rate of return right. Anybody would be proud of them and it's it's a AH wonderful so they're other programs that we do. We have again financial literacy centers in schools because we don't want a child to leave school and and we want to help their parents not become homeless. Yeah I the Best Homeless Prevention Program for families out there as spark point and we lead those until I talked about education pillar in the financial stability pillar and we'd chief though so just so you know again. We just didn't rest on our laurels. We up those goals so we're in two point Komo now. We're going to close the disparity rate of graduation rates between schools the haves and have nots quite frankly in terms that we know what schools graduate -aduated eighty five percent where schools in more prosperous series of Orange County or at graduate in like ninety eight percent. We WanNA close that gap and I think the committee wants to be partners with associate education. Is your passion out there please. I get involved with that and financial stability. We need to improve it another twenty five percents so we're all in fact they're back in and probably the one of the things that most people ask me about maybe have read about our. United Ten homelessness offer that one has been really quite a journey and there's so many things that I think have gone that we're moving in the right direction but there's still so so many of our homeless neighbors that are need help and so we are all in on that issue and I can talk more about that. If you'd like yeah no please do. I mean I know personally. I've helped raise you know contributions or funds just to be able to get simple packets together and and we're talking like socks and or or bat like bags or a flashlight just little simple things that people don't even think about and we would go and hand them the Maori and so I was just I mean it was all orchestrated event but that's just one thing that I experienced and it was incredibly humbling. I mean I don't know if you WANNA share some some of the things that we're doing to make that impact yes so we have a huge ecosystem that were leading around the United Ten homelessness and and it started because we realized that the business community had really been asking gauge when we started and we start looking at best practices another thing we do is look across the country country who's doing something well and we found for example. Orlando Florida that a cut their street homelessness and half and three years. We wanted to really understand what was going on. What are they are. You doing great. One of the things that they have done is they've they've marshaled garnered support from the private apartment community and so we launched with a one of our dear partners a pilot called welcome how Mosey so we actually got some funding from the county of Orange to put in a landlord incentive program because if I'm homeless and you're not yeah I think I've been walking around on the street with a voucher. I Ah I've gone through the assessment process in everybody that is homeless. That's getting help has been assessed and again most people who need eight. How have a disability have something that they're not going to be able to get back on their feet in a long term scenario without health? Dan so I'm walking around going door to door but I don't have credit. I don't have money for first and last night the positivity and so huge hurdle you turtles so we're taking that right away so through our generous donors we've been able to Fun I last month rat that we've been able to put a damage mitigation fund. We've we've donors that have helped us with providing funds so every place to be furnished uniquely and based on the disability of perhaps that talent but also the size and configuration of that particular apartment right so we've put this all together and in some cases it's come. I'm from the county of Orange and just this last month. If I can tell you one mazy yeah so we were called by one of the housing authorities are you're five there soothes me there are four housing authorities here in Orange County okay and they were like sue we have thirty people who have been looking for a place to live for months in some cases years we have to get thirty more families housed by the end of August to apply for up to three hundred more vouchers I for hot for three hundred families up to yeah and but we have to get these three house and we haven't been able to do it so we went out to current donors new donors. We went out your. F- for the let's see if we can find this program because we didn't have money just sitting around to rail real that gap and long behold in thirty days we had seventy three people that came together and raise five hundred thousand dollars and then we I have I've been getting chills because we have landlords property owners that have come forward to say we want to help and so we're getting the the people house and so person the other day that I was learning about is just just brings me sad but there's so woman that has been living on the streets taking care of her disabled daughters for twelve years. Wow her disabled daughter twelve years. She's been living on the street and through this this program. She was just house to her and her daughter. That's amazing. What a Gift Yeah so. There's things going on small large. We'll help with diaper. Dries will help put together the welcome home packages yeah but in this case we actually had generous donors that helped fund this program. Graham so thirty more people are going to be able to live in a place. They can call home. That's amazing and people just take that for granted. I mean everyone's like they're. You know you get get so busy in your day to day but this is a real struggle for people in our and I just want to emphasize is in our local community. People don't even realize how so many people are homeless and going without and don't realize what they're going to get their next meal and where they're going to go and this is this is right here in Orange County and in in and I have a lot of I have a lot of people that I connect with every day that you know we give might give money globally because there's maybe in their mind there's other issues but I just really wanna be able to draw attention to this amazing organization and all the things that you as are specifically he doing right here locally Orange County making an impact of your community and creating a change for the next generation and these are the people who are going to be their children will be around your children and in the reality is is we're helping one another just INCR-. Why not you know exactly they are neighbors? I there is so much misinformation so if somebody out there wants to know the facts we did a cost study with UCI. We just didn't ourselves. We hired we commission. UCI To do a definitive research study on the homeless situation here in Orange County and that again is on our website so ah united way OC DOT org but to your point. It's it's close to its over. Seventy percent of the people that are homeless are from Orange County that are lived here at least ten years that how they got homeless in the first place is they lost a job. They didn't have the resources to keep paying their rent so they lost a place to live in. Normally there was some other trigger factor in their life which could have been for a woman domestic violence. It could have been an illness. It could be the death of a spouse something spiraled out of control and they didn't have a network to fall back on and so it could happen to Anne of us. I'm working with a realtor right now. That wants to help her. Brother is homeless and she is like driven because no matter what she's done. She's is not been able to help him long-term. Everybody were helping. We're helping along the way with the case management here. The caregiving through the amazing network of service providers is out there but I just really do want to help shake that meth and there is there is the other side that any of us lived on the streets. You're I- LETITIA Russia for any period of time. The constant Strauss would take a toll on US mentally yeah and who knows what might go to for to escape right so true and so there's a lot of reasons but at the end of the day it's a small portion of the amount of people living here in Orange County and we need to help and there are ways to help in a sustainable so please get involve yeah and just so you know like my my why is my aunt was homeless here in Orange County and she had a great job and like you said multiple triggers happen lost her job and had turned older and had a midlife crises and just didn't know what to do view and literally found herself on the streets and I couldn't help her and she didn't want my help and so didn't know really how to help but I got myself involved in local organizations wants to be able to realize that there was a need I can give back to an organization that that's able to help an end. Maybe you can share different ways to help but I know I personally. I volunteer my time. I volunteer on one of your your your a little smaller bores the and participate in that and and then I also give financially I encourage other people to as well and it doesn't mean that I'm encouraging everyone just to give united way but giving in general is such a huge like like my way of saying thank you and giving back and I know I'm making a change so I might personal y but everyone has a story to get to them to get where they are today but maybe you can share where people can how they can contribute or how they can volunteer your locally yeah well. What and thank you for sharing that story. That's just everybody like you said we all have something going on in our lives right so do we always talk about it in terms of time talent treasure right and so some people can give all three some people may be at different points of time. You have more treasure than time or more time than treasure and we always love like talent like you allowing us to have a chance to interface with you. It's wonderful so thank you for sharing your talent time with me today. I think the volunteering there's opportunities in terms of folks that have time we have different opportunities through our partners nonprofit partners so again they can go on our side and they can learn a different volunteer activities specifically for united ten Hamas. We need the positive people who really want to impact change and become housing champions. There's a plan to build twenty seven hundred permit support of units around Orange County those would be apartments that come with case management to help people who need help we need those built and so people might be passionate about that and we could help train them and how do they become a positive voice and they could go on United to end Homelessness Dot Org and learn.

There's a plan to build twenty seven hundred permit support of units around Orange County those would be the apartments that come with case management to how people who need help we need those built and so people might be passionate about that and we could help train them and how do they become a positive voice and they could go on United to end Homelessness Dot Org and learn.

"To navigate navigate the system of the different programs and services here in Orange County. What does that mean what that means is that when you're in a crisis the situation and I think we're very realistically. We kind of joke about it but we say everybody. Is only six seconds away from a crisis right. It could be that car slam. Stop Stop suddenly and you bump into them or you could have a child who ends up getting injured somehow. You could have a situation where you've got a sister. Who who is in a domestic violence situation doesn't know where to go? You could have a cousin who's a veteran who's having a problems re entering into the community. You could know somebody in your neighborhood who has a family member who has become homeless because they've lost their job. What two one one does in strictly by dialing the number two dash one dash one. It's the same thing that's dialing nine. One one you get connected to took us and we have access to over three thousand programs here in Orange County they run run the the gamut from connecting people to shelter programs if they're looking for housing to connect those who are part of a domestic violence situation to a program that can keep them safe and secure we can connect people transportation options in the community legal services just about everything worded to one one come from well the genesis of two one what is really an interesting interesting one here in Orange County. We actually started in nineteen eighty four thirty five years ago when a number of the hospital saw that there was a need for away to connect people to the health and human services here in Orange County however at the two one one number actually came about in two thousand in in four when a number of what we call ourselves in for information referral specialists across the State got together and petitioned petition the California California Puc to get the number so there is a two one one in every community in here in Orange County. We've got ninety seven percent percent coverage. I think within the state of California this one up in L. A. County Riverside San Bernardino San Diego and obviously Orange County that Cetera what each of the individual to do is they get to know the community resources and make sure that they have a good idea of what what type of programs are offered and who they can see. It's it's to help streamline the path to the appropriate resource interestingly distinctly enough to one one as a whole really took off in two thousand and five when Hurricane Katrina hit when I talked to one as a whole I mean and nationwide and when that situation occurred and it's no different than here in California if we have an earthquake or wildfires right you have people who've never ver- needed to tap into the social services safety net who all of a sudden need to figure out how to get help because they've lost their home they can't move back into their home for whatever reason united way saw an down in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina that there was the need to build this into more of a robust system in the country so there are two hundred forty two one ones of those half of them are what I would call owner operated by the United way by the local united ways. The rest of us are independently run but we all have a good relationship with the local united way. I'm curious about what we did before before we needed to one one. I'm assuming that there was a time before two one one where there was a a need and I wanNA push back before that too before there was a need. How did these these he's social traumas. How did we deal with them then. Will I think there are a couple of things so this is pre nineteen eighty-four. Are you thinking so yeah for that. So I think obviously it has something to do with our social services network right. I think that there was a stronger longer sense of community and neighborhood one of the things I've found so interesting here an Orange County is if you go back to pre the beginning of our organization in in eighty four I think there were maybe a million people living here in Orange County. the thirty four cities towns operated very independently there were geographic barriers between them but I think that within each of the community unity say operated fairly the independently and and they they relied on themselves so if you think about it much more of a net a neighborhood network with the expansion of course we're over three million people here in that growth came pretty fast and so you think about the stress rests on the system. I think we're just at the point. Now is a community that we really are building out systems of care which is always a challenge right because you have people who are still very familiar with operating things independently who are now having to work in in a collaborative way but I do think societally if we take a look at it I mean for me one of the things I really see he is with the growth that we're seeing with baby boomers becoming our elderly now and the stress on the system what we're calling our silver tsunami soon Nami that we're really concerned about people losing their housing because a up one partner spouse dies and now they're down to one social the social security monthly check. They don't have the two people are no longer living with their family. I that yeah the no longer living with their family in what I'm curious about is do. They even have a relationship with their family right well. That's a good point. I mean I- anecdotally just for myself myself. I have a father who's ninety three or about to turn ninety three who lives in Colorado and he's still is living on his own very independent. He's it's great health. His doctor told me physiologically as is that of a seventy five year old which is Great but we've had conversations stations about him moving out here with us and I've had friends and I'm talking friends who are are seniors themselves who have said Oh. You don't WanNa do that because it's as if it would disrupt your life well. I come from a family where we do that. Type of thing wouldn't even cross my mind not to do that but I I think that's the exception versus the rule at least hearing California. I don't know if it's true across the country but I at least Orange County well. I I have heard about the the baby boomer's being the sandwich generation. we find ourselves in a place where we're helping our children and through them our grandchildren and the same time we're paying attention to our our parents and and and and that to me is a part of the community that that that deals with issues here in in now when things get out of hand or more than we have out of the resources. Mrs Or the contact with resources to deal with it would seem to me then something to one would become very important almost most like a safety net but not the place of I the the play the first place we're going to call We're going to look at each other. We're going to and be dealing with the family and I'm wondering if that's what was then and that there was a process of love. I don't know a lot of people moving in without their families to California a lot of immigrants coming in in I wonder if if part of providing resources is also providing a path back to the development of community yeah I think that having a path back to the development community is very important I would say that where we function as a safety net as an example would be if you have somebody who has a senior parents but they don't know that they can sign up for cal fresh and they could get an additional fifty dollars that would help towards their groceries or they might be looking for senior daycare if you will and they they wanna make sure that they're there are adult. Their parent is taking care of during the day by going someplace we can connect to those resources. We have fabulous new program called to one ride ride so someone has a computer they can just log onto to one one right dot. Org or they can call us but it actually taps into all the transportation tation Multi County L. A. Riverside San Fernando Dina and Orange County that taps into what it will cost. If you take a bus awesome what the routes are the train etc and are there nonprofits who can actually come to you to pick you up or with the Trans. OC Ta with with our bus system if you actually need to have somebody who can take a wheelchair or needs to walk you up to the door a demand response what I think the adult children of those seniors would be glad to know that there's that kind of resource right one of the things I found when I talked to baby boomers who are part of that sandwich. situation generation is that they they need to know the two one one is across the country so if they have a call from an adult child who has come to rely on them strictly for financial support there is a little bit of pushback where you can say why don't you call your local one and see if they can get you connected to some help right right which is a lovely lovely thing to be able to do right and and and Mary my wife Mary in in Riverside at Saint Michael's church in that outreach ministries industry. She's been doing there for seven years. there's a tremendous amount of of helping people to learn that there are many resources for them helping to find jobs helping them to find housing in in tapping into the city of Riverside in this particular case because their resources there that people who were on the streets may not be aware of it all my I'm wondering that ah about providing resources which is absolutely necessary important and vital at the same time resources are not enough breath and I'm wondering where that community formation is now when I was growing up back way before the Internet Church was a place of not only providing resources in in in relationships but it was a place of learning how to relate and it was a place where at best the church community would say here are better ways of relating to each other so you can meet some needs out there and I'm wondering where we do that today well especially in a multi generational multigenerational generational diverse cultural yet. We're all living in this soup called Southern California and I'm just wondering I mean where does that happen. I have four people where do they. Where do they begin to learn how to support each other. I'm not necessarily in giving rides but incorporate people into community. Well I think there there are some real strong connections that we carry forth with us right or or learning how to do things so you you know. I'm a I'm a a preacher's kid. PK and we moved several times when I was growing up and so from that upbringing one of the things I learned was how important it was to get to know your neighborhood and my parents really understood that church was always a part of it but my main growing up years it was a campus ministry so it wasn't really there weren't other kids. It's the neighborhood was very important when my husband and I moved back to southern California back back in ninety seven. It was very very important for us to find a neighborhood that functioned as a neighborhood where you knew your neighbors and around the neighborhood we live in is just fabulous. I mean we have people who've lived there for twenty-five thirty years. They raised their children there. We we have a grandparent's age. People are in their eighties and nineties who lived there. We have young families. It's it's it's a really wonderful blunt. We have people who come from all parts of the world it's very very diverse but we get together every Memorial Day Fourth of July Labor Labor Day and New Year's Eve those that that's a standing thing that we do every single year and we are all there for each other and get together other times loosely sleep in a ranch type things but we've come to rely on each other in when someone new moves into the neighboring them into the fold you do something to say We'll see you and we are here now now. I just got off the phone before I came to the show with a friend of mine who is now living in in San Francisco was in Chicago and he was asking me he said you know we're living in San Francisco in the living in the tenderloin because that's where the law school is my wife is going to and and he said in Chicago I would carry around McDonald's you know.
