Oakland Councilmember-at-large Rebecca Kaplan hosted a community meeting on homeless solutions Monday to address what she believes is the city’s number one concern: the number of unhoused people living on Oakland’s streets. According to Kaplan, the meeting was about honing in on all possible solutions to end the community’s ever-growing homelessness crisis. She believes there hasn’t been a response in line with the magnitude of the problem.
“It is my goal to implement solutions to the scale of the problem,” said Kaplan. “Not 20 more homes—3,000 more!”
