Remembering Victims of the Ghost Ship Fire, Student Homelessness
Remembering Victims of the Ghost Ship Fire
The Bay Area has been mourning the 36 lives lost in the Ghost Ship warehouse fire, even as many questions remain about its cause and who should be held accountable. Thuy Vu talks with members of the Bay Area arts community including Russell Butler, Jon Lady, Brendan Dreaper and Jonah Strauss about how the tragedy is affecting them and to remember some of the artists lost in the fire.
A new study from San Diego State University found that one-third of all community college students are either homeless or living on the edge of being unable to afford housing. Scott Shafer talks with KQED reporter Laura Klivans and UC Berkeley undergraduate student Taylor Lorraine Harvey about homelessness among students.
