Colburn Co-authors an Editorial in The Hill: Affordable Housing is the Solution to Homelessness, not Criminalization

Posted: 4/19/2024 (CSDE Research)

CSDE Affiliate Gregg Colburn (Real Estate, UW) co-authored an editorial with Margot Kushel in The Hill, entitledAffordable housing is the solution to homelessness, not criminalization“. Authors published the editorial in light of upcoming arguments in Grants Pass vs. Johnson, a U.S. Supreme Court Case which will determine whether local governments can make it a crime to live outside when adequate shelter is not available. In the editorial, Colburn and Kushel discuss how criminalization is often an ineffective solution to homelessness in place of the obvious solution – affordable housing.
