From the Ashes - California Wildfires


In 2018 the Camp Fire, the largest and deadliest wildfire in California history, leveled the entire town of Paradise, where nearly 19,000 buildings, mostly homes, were destroyed. The Poor People's Campaign and the California Homeless Union together supported the newly homeless residents. 3 years later, in the midst of yet another devastating wildfire season, what has happened in Paradise and the surrounding communities? Our guests are Anthony Prince, General Counsel for the California Homeless Union, and Greg Shafer, originally from Paradise, who works as a mental health provider and advocates for those made homeless by the fire.




FSTV’s Just Solutions features inspiring conversations with activists, community leaders, and others working to make our world a better place. We discuss the many challenges we are facing, while exploring the solutions emerging from the grassroots.
