Join Oregon Humanities for a conversation about poverty and addiction in America with Eli Saslow.
Eli Saslow is a national reporter for the New York Times. His recent reporting has focused on homelessness, inequality, and opioid addiction in Arizona, California, and Oklahoma. He lives in Portland. This conversation will explore how intersecting crises of housing, drug addiction, and mental health affect people and communities across the country. We’ll also discuss the stories we tell about these crises. From what perspectives are they told? And who are they for?
