Paul Boden became homeless at age 16. In the decades since then, he's earned national recognition for his advocacy on behalf of the homeless. Boden ran the San Francisco Coalition on Homelessness for 16 years, where he wasn't shy about criticizing the attitude that homelessness is "only a problem if you can see it." He now runs the Western Regional Advocacy Project. He joins us to talk about the current state of Bay Area homelessness and about his book, "House Keys Not Handcuffs."
