-We bring you the Women’s International News Gathering Service, WINGS. Progress is being made by the domestic workers rights movement in the US. Ai-Jen Poo, the organizer recently honoured with a MacArthur Genius Grant for strategizing the movement’s success, speaks to Ashley Milne-Tyte.
-A few weeks ago, the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness ((Homeless Hub))[http://www.homelesshub.ca/] and the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness (CAEH) released their second annual ‘State of Homelessness in Canada Report’. 235,000 Canadians experience homelessness each year and 35,000 canadians are homeless on any given night according to that report. But this report is not simply about providing facts on homelessness but working towards developing concrete solutions to eliminate it. We’ll hear from York University Professor and Director of the Homeless Hub, Stephen Gaetz about this report and what it would really take to end the problems of chronic homelessness and affordable housing in Canada. Produced by Maggie Reid.
