Poverty, addiction, homelessness. We think we know what these #UNIGNORABLE issues look like in our community. But do we really? How do they happen? And what can we possibly do about it?

After the event Scott Taylor, a former journalist with lived experience of poverty, was tasked to further interview our panelists, really taking a deep dive into these issues hurting our community.
These are their stories.
