In this episode of Us As We Are, we talk to activists at the Housing Now demonstration which took place around Ashland's downtown Hargadine parking structure on Monday Jan. 18th. The group planned the demonstration to put pressure on Ashland's City Council to designate the structure as an emergency shelter for the community's homeless population. The following Tuesday Jan. 19th, the City Council met and discussed the homeless issue, and began the process of selecting a location for a potential shelter/campground similar to what the Housing Now group advocates for. Several days after these events, Joseph Gibson, who speaks at length in this video, had his tent and gear covered in a gross brothy substance, allegedly by somebody who is disgruntled by Joseph's recent actions. Footage of the aftermath is included towards the end of this episode.
