In this week's New Yorker, Nathan Heller reports on San Francisco's already complex homelessness crisis amidst the current COVID-19 health emergency. He visits with those living on the streets, or precipitously on the verge, in the Tenderloin neighborhood amongst other areas. Heller, who grew up in San Francisco, is a frequent contributor to the New Yorker (his work also has appeared in Vogue) and one of our favorite minds to bear witness to through his writing. We highly recommend reading A Window Onto an American Nightmare.
Additionally, we stand vehemently in opposition to the police brutality that riddles this country, which is only one symptom of a larger systemic problem. This Google doc, compiled by Alyssa Klein and Sarah Sophie Flicker, offers a helpful anti-racism reading list for non-POC.
