The Marc Steiner Show

August 7, 2012 – Segment 2

We focus on Baltimore with a story about a West Baltimore family’s eviction that resulted from a zero-tolerance policy for subsidized homes. Sherman and Jean Thomas’ sons have drug-related criminal records and used their parents’ address and their own, prompting the eviction. To discuss the situation, this policy, and its impact on Baltimore communities, we’re joined by:

  • Jean Thomas of the family facing eviction,
  • Michelle Moore, community organizer for Communities United,
  • Tessa Hill-Aston of the Baltimore NAACP,
  • and Michelle Ewert, attorney at the Homeless Persons Representation Project
