How Media Coverage on Homelessness Falls Short (And What Reporters Can Do About It)

Hye-Jin Kim and Meka Boyle, San Francisco Public Press — Jun 22 2016 - 8:00am

Justin Allen, The Public Press — Oct 23 2009 - 10:45pm

Students gathered Thursday in the Cesar Chavez student center for a teach-in organized by the Coalition Against the Rec Center, a group of students opposing the construction of a Recreation and Wellness Center. But the proposal has divided opinion on campus, with the president of the largest student group, which strongly backs the plan, declaring, "The project will never die."
