TFor our Interdisciplinary Project we decided to learn about the controversy regarding homeless relocation. This topic was noticeable to our eyes because we were eager to know where the homeless were being put after being relocated and how they felt about being moved from their “homes.” We decided to answer the question “What are the economic and social effects of homeless relocation?”
Our group is focusing on those specific viewpoints because after researching the topic we discovered that the only reason the homeless relocation law was even a thought is because the homeless were affecting large amounts of cities economically. Our group was determined to focus on the homeless relocation that is currently happening in the bay area, however we researched information on nation wide relocation to get a wider perspective on the topic. We wanted to pay more attention to what was happening in the bay area because we live here and are somewhat affected by it.
Our group wrote 3 essays, each giving a better understanding of what homeless relocation is and what affects are. Each member of the group wrote one essay, starting with the definition essay. The definition essay gave a better sense of what homeless relocation is and why the law was brought upon us. Another member wrote a essay on some the cause and effects. In that essay you will read about some of the social and economical effects that were caused by homeless relocation. Lastly, a narrative essay was written about a women telling the tragic story of her ex husband becoming a b is um on the streets and then being relocated from his home city. All three of these essays gave us the 2 different point of views from the homeless and the politicians.
The Chain Reaction of Homeless Relocation – The Chain Reaction of Homeless Relocation is an essay about why the homeless relocation law was passed and how it affected homeless people around the country socially and economically.
Whats Up with Homeless Relocation – What’s Up with Homeless Relocation is a definition essay that gives a better sense of what homeless relocation is and how they get relocated.
Did They Think About Us – Did They Think About Us is a narrative about a woman telling the tragic story of how her (ex) husband. About how he started with it all and then ended up as homeless man being relocated from his home city and put in a random state.
