A Roof is a yearlong project from 360 North and KTOO Public Media examining homelessness and affordable housing in Alaska.
No matter where you live, whether it’s Anchorage, a smaller community on the road system, or in the Bush, the cost and availability of housing affects you.
Then there are the thousands of Alaskans who don’t have any place to call home. There are a number of issues that lead to homelessness and trying to understand and explain them will be part of our challenge as we move forward with “The Roof.”
- Alaska Native people gather before Alaska Day in Sitka to share knowledge and to heal.
- When you toss a candy wrapper in the trash in five Southeast Alaska communities, you’re sending it on a thousand-mile journey to a Lower 48 landfill.
- The Canadian DJ collective is playing Centennial Hall with Woosh.ji.een Dance Group. They combine traditional Pow Wow songs with elements of hip-hop to promote inclusivity and representation of First Nations peoples.
- It’s not clear whether independent Gov. Bill Walker will run in the primary. A campaign spokesperson said Walker could not comment because it is a pending legal matter to which the state is a party.
