"Some being turned away as hospitals declare internal disasters. This is NPR news. Live from KQED news. I'm Brian what Bay Area governments are grappling with how to conduct their buy any old point in time count of homeless residents amidst the pandemic while keeping hundreds of volunteers who usually do the count safe. Some are asking the federal government for permission not to conduct this year's count. Take you Ladies. Alex. Hall reports, a number of counties and cities in the Bay Area are requesting to delay the count. For now. San Francisco, Alameda, Marin, Napa and Cinema counties have all asked for a waiver from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, or HUD. Spokesman Ed Cabrera says the agency is generally granting those requests if a community believes that they can safely conduct and unsheltered Count Hut is working with them. But if after they've evaluated their circumstances and have concluded that they cannot safely count this year, then hut is granting exceptions upon request. But under one condition, communities that receive a waiver have to tell the department how else they will keep track of changes in their homeless populations. That's because the data the count's typically generate is used to inform policy and funding for state and federal programs. So we think it's critical that communities know you know how the unsheltered population has changed. Even during this ongoing pandemic. Some communities like Santa Clara County are still evaluating whether they will request a waiver or move forward with the count later this month. I'm Alex Hall. KQED news.

Corwin Headache Co. Moh news Odds are good that Corona virus and vaccine are coming up in conversation as you talk with your loved ones these days as much as you love and trust those family members. It's important to remember that they and you might have been exposed to some viral vaccine hoaxes online. Rachel Lurman has taken a closer look for the Washington Post. She spoke with Cuomo's Tom Cutler. So give us a rundown of some of the more popular hoax is making the rounds. What do we need to do to keep our ears and eyes open for these? Yes, there were seeing quite a few of them makes around. Some of them have been around for a little while. You may have heard of one that says that the government is going to put microchips and the vaccine in order to track us. That is not true. The vaccine from guys are actually has 10 ingredients, and none of them are microchips. There's also some hopes of going around about that. The vaccine causes Bell's palsy. That's not true. There's been quite a few kind of running around, and it's kind of it can be really hard to tell what is real. And what is fake. When you don't know where the source is coming from. Yeah, that seems to be the problem with a lot of these things that went on during the during the political campaign to is Facebook or any other social media company tried to moderate this and can they stop the spread of this misinformation? This information is that because so much of it is belief or opinion based and because it's kind of like everywhere in small pockets. The chances of getting it on a loss is our impossible, but they are doing a lot of things to try to crack down both Facebook and Twitter and YouTube says that they're removing post with false claims. Twitter is also going toe label. Some of these Dubious claim some of these more kind of like opinion based rumors. They're going to label those. So I mean, you know, I talked to some experts about this, and they're actually quite happy with what the social media companies are doing. But just because of the way that misinformation spreads, we're going to see this no matter what. Where do we start? I mean, and why are they so hard to stop? Just people sitting around with nothing better to do is just some in city And you know, some insidious minds that hard work. What? How does he know? What's the genesis of the interesting thing with vaccine? Misinformation is that we often see people spreading it by mistake. They're spreading things that they genuinely think are real. And they're trying to help people versus what we see often with political misinformation where a lot of it is spread on purpose. But in this case, what we're seeing is sometimes it's a study. Sometimes it's an article with the Bell's palsy piece. We saw an article that was correct about one vaccine trial where some people got balance policy. Now the rate at which they got it is the rate at which the normal population gets us so it could have nothing to do with the vaccine whatsoever. But that conversation has kind of mutated and worked into this false rumor. The vaccine causes it. There's an old saying, Don't believe everything you read. And I guess that really applies in this case, doesn't it? It really does. And I think an important thing to point out is if you're going to tell people that what they're sharing is incorrect. Don't share the original claim. Thank you so much. Rachel Rachel Woman Washington post dot com and that's co most Tom Cutler. Your money at 20 and 50 past the hour on, Come on.

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

As far as l A people listening right now?

I don't think that anyone in this country is confused about whether l. A is in decline. Ella is in decline. Ella is one of those badly run Democrat cities that President is talking about. I am shocked at the decline of Los Angeles. I think we have a lot of cities in the United States that are in decline. A lot of badly run cities, and I actually think I have a list here somewhere. I think we've got Chicago, Baltimore were. Milwaukee, Minnesota. Minneapolis, New York, Los Angeles, Oakland, San Francisco, ST Louis, Cleveland. New Orleans, Atlanta, Memphis and Kansas City. So these air cities that I've researched then these air cities that are are in trouble because they are under democratic leadership. Let me jump in there. Donald Trump has been president for four years. What do four more years mean? Then? If what you're saying is right, what do four more years mean for those city specifically? I mean, I just think that that these cities have just been doing whatever they want, and we need to put these cities on some kind of federal consent decree because that's what happened when we had LAPD and we had police misconduct, and we had all those things. Nate Holden sat on the board of Public Safety for the city of Los Angeles for eight years. I studied all of those hearings, and I know that a consent decree is not always the most cost effective thing. But in this case where we have these crimes, I mean, I think we need federal oversight because of these cities cannot handle. Their problems, and they're overwhelmed rather than trying to shove them under the rug or ignore them. Ignorance is no excuse. We've got people who are hurting in our cities. Unfortunately, they're usually people of color. African Americans happened to be ah, large part of homeless people Unsheltered on the streets of Los Angeles. We have by the way the nation's most unsheltered homeless and almost a third of which are are black and African American, and people need to understand that distinction. I think I think there's some confusion as to as to the distinction of black And African American. I think there's confusion there, but I think there's a very big difference between the two. In my view, based on what I've learned from from a prominent civil rights leader that I worked for. So I'm not going to go down that rabbit hole with you because we do not have enough time for all, but I am running out of time. Rabbit hole for sure. Very quickly.

"Will further hurt those experiencing homelessness. Here's what they said in the Twitterverse. That's what they said last night, criminalizing homelessness further. Stigmatizes our unsheltered neighbors and drive them away from the services will help get them off the streets. I want to be very clear about Echo previously led by an Howard, who's now what Travis County Commissioner by the way, and she's going to do everything she can on the county level to fund echo, Even Mohr. She was the one that managed to get twice as much money from $40,000,080 million from the City Council to deal with this homeless crisis under echoes leadership in Austin and in Travis County. The homeless problem has ballooned. It has gotten worse and has gotten even more expensive under echoes leadership, no doubt Driving around town this weekend downtown drove down 63 drove down. This is your Chavez? Of course. I come down Caesar Chavez every morning, but it's dark but always say some horrors coming down there, but but seeing it in broad daylight right now, getting a really good picture. I kind of can't believe what's going on down there in it's in the sitter, right smack dab in our convention Entertainment district. It's going to kill this down. If we don't get these folks off the street. There were 2506 people experiencing homelessness in Austin in January that, according to the latest Echo point in Time survey that was an 11% increase from the previous year. And the highest since 2011. 2500 people. You you would think $80 million would take care of 2500 people. Golly, I hope so. In the 2020 count, 932 people were sleeping in shelters or transitional housing 20% decline in the sheltered population from 2019. So we've done everything we can to provide more space for the homeless. But fewer are actually using it. But they according to echo 1574 people sleeping outside in tents and in cars. Another place represent about 45% increase in the unsheltered homeless population from 2019. All this has done is put them in a better position to to Panhandle on better better access, Just given better access to pan handling. It hasn't made their situation any any better. I still want to know where they get these tents, too. By the way, who get where they get the tents? They're donated People buy it for me. You know that sort of thing. A lot of that. Yeah. You think that's a bad idea? Don't give him tense. Well, what it does is, it makes it easier for them to camp out on the street. That's what is exactly what it's done it they should be told. Gather your things. We're going to take you out to camp Rat. Where the governor has provided space, water, restrooms and even security. It's a much safer place, just that's what they all should be taking us. It's a matter of business activity in the world of business. It really is that this this affects the local economy. It's inhumane to allow people to sleep this way. But the city continues to allow it. I could not imagine. Being a business owner downtown in the entertainment district in the convention area down there, I could not imagine being a business owner and having to deal with it.
