Julie Fenwick, Black Lives Matter and WhtWeSee, Kristin O'Connell and AUWU, Homelessness week, Jenny Smith and social housing disparities, Beyond the Bars 2020

Acknowledgement of country// Introduction// Genevieve talks to Julie Feniwck, a writer based in Naarm/Melbourne, about her new project WhtWeSee. WhtWeSee comes in the form of a blog/website, and was designed to amplify voices, responses and experiences of BIPOC people in light of the Black Lives Matter protests and George Floyds murder. The website has a series of contributors and allows the stories of those that may otherwise be drowned out by the media tornado, to be heard. You can access the website at the link here https://www.whtwesee.com/ // Lauren interviews Kristin O’Connell, media spokesperson for the Australian Unemployed Workers Union, about mutual obligations and JobSeeker during the COVID-19 pandemic// Genevieve interviews Homelessness Australia's CEO, Jenny Smith, for Homelessness week this week. We discuss new data gathered, regarding the large gap between the number of homeless and the social housing needed to end homelessness, where this is an issue apparent across the state, not just metropolitan Melbourne. For this year's homelessness week, a series of interactive heat maps are being released that show both the problem of homelessness, and the solution of social housing. You can find them here: https://everybodyshome.com.au/heat-maps/// In light of the Government's announcement of new targets for 'Closing the Gap', failing to reach any desired targets for indigenous Ausyralians in the near future, we have incorporated some snippets from 'Beyond the Bars' 2020.
