This week we're asking how to be better neighbors

Sep 9, 2016

How should Seattle use millions of dollars to end homelessness in the city? According to two new reports, it should redirect resources from transitional housing to more permanent housing programs. How will the city tackle these recommendations?

Meanwhile, Seattle City Council is considering a controversial ordinance that would change how the city conducts homeless encampment evictions. What is the conversation around these evictions really about?               

Donald Trump has been running a campaign against political correctness, but what does political correctness really mean? When do we need it and when does it go too far?

Also, according to The Atlantic, canvas grocery bags aren’t as good for the environment as we might have thought. What to do about all those canvas bags?

We'll tackle these subjects and more on Week in Review.

Listen to the live discussion Friday at noon. Join in by following @KUOW and using #KUOWwir. Audio will be available on this post by 3 p.m. You can also listen to the rebroadcast Friday night at 7 p.m.
