How are young people affected by Sacramento’s housing crisis? In this bonus episode of Place and Privilege, we share stories produced as part of the Next Generation Radio Training Project, hosted at Capital Public Radio for Northern California student journalists. A professional team from public media outlets around the country worked side-by-side with these young journalists to create first-person stories:
- Nour Coudsi, a UC Berkeley graduate, explores how Sacramento artists are affected by the housing crisis.
- Isabella Lord, a student at UC Davis, talks with a Sacramento City College student about his struggle with homelessness.
- Laura Tsutsui, a graduate of Fresno State, follows a Sacramento State student on the hunt for an affordable place to live.
- Hilda Flores, a graduate of CSU Stanislaus, follows a student who is hard-pressed to find a suitable place to live in Sacramento, even with a housing voucher.
- Elizabeth Castillo, a Chico State student, tells the story of a mother of eight who has trouble finding housing because of an eviction on her record.
- David Rodriguez, a San Francisco State student, talks with a family of six living happily in an RV.
