In the fourth of a six-part series celebrating “Truth Tellers,” Andrea Suarez explains how her frustration over trash littering the streets of Seattle morphed into a mission to disrupt the homeless industrial complex.
Parents frightened for their kids, fed up with their government and demanding to know: What will it take to clear out the homeless camp under Seattle’s Ship Canal Bridge for good? Parents’ pleas were heard all the way in Olympia and Gov. Jay Inslee told FOX 13 that state and local agencies were about to launch a major cleanup effort, but it still may not be enough to satisfy neighbors. The Spotlight also spoke with people experiencing homelessness who have been building their own solutions while waiting for permanent housing. But the result is threatening public safety on highways from Seattle to Spokane. Plus, a fix for the state’s police pursuit policy advances in Olympia, but not without some big changes at the last minute.
It’s a move that critics often say displaces a vulnerable population without addressing the root problem. Though for Austin Coil, Thursday’s move represents a new start.
