Short Description: 
Ani and Lyn discuss the criminalization of poverty in America

In an article for the Guardian, How America Criminalized Poverty, journalist and muckraker Barbara Erehreich states that "the viciousness of state officals to the poor and homeless is breathtaking, trapping them in a cycle of poverty" Does Portland Mayor Charlie Hales attitude that the crackdown on high-profile camping is about enforcing the law not criminalizeing the homeless pass the moral smell test? Are we are bothers keeper or just their slum land lord? Please join us dear listener, in the discussion.

Local poverty-rights activist, José Serrica, will join Ani and Lyn in this discussion.  

Call in with your comments, stories, and questions- the number to the studio is 503-231-8187.
