Seattle geometry lesson:
"Homelessness is a local and national emergency. Walking block by block through streets booming with construction but then under the freeway in areas peppered with tents was a stark reminder of the deep inequities of wealth and income in our city. We can and must do better. The fact that we see thousands of people living unsheltered, in the streets and in cars, is a moral and institutional failure. I will do everything I can at the federal level to build the affordable housing we need, provide the support systems necessary for people to live and fix a broken tax system that benefits only the few. Solving this crisis will require all of us —government, business, nonprofits and communities — to share responsibility for real solutions." - @PramilaJayapal
@amazon I like you. I use your Alexa, I prime a lot of stuff to my house, You supported my artistic pursuits and you are creating 65 rooms for @marysplacewa that will house over 200 women experiencing homelessness. I thank you for this.
But I have to say, if you net 60 billion again this next quarter you might consider throwing a few more bucks towards affordable housing/ this crisis. Because it's kinda hard to enjoy your bio balls that simulate the outdoors when there are over 11,000+ living in the *actual* outdoors 😳
