We return to our coverage of Camp 83, a homeless encampment under I-83 that was cleared Friday morning, and the City’s response to homelessness in Baltimore. We start with our coverage of Friday morning’s Camp 83 eviction in the words of advocates and the homeless who turned out to show their support and bear witness to what was happening.

Then, co-host Anthony McCarthy of The Anthony McCarthy Show joins me and:

  • Olivia Farrow, Director of the Mayor’s Office of Human Services;
  •  Kate Briddell, Director of the Mayor’s Homeless Services Program;
  • and Gabby Knighton, Outreach Coordinator for the Mayor’s Homeless Services Program, to discuss the state of homelessness in Baltimore and what the City’s reaction should be.
