One activist is taking on a sort of sub journey. Conrad Barney has been on a hunger strike for 18 days. Barney says he once struggled with finding shelter and being woken up in the middle of the night to relocate in the city.
Beyond local politics, he hopes the community will come together to push for solutions.
“It’s detrimental to people’s health to be woken up and sleep deprived and exposed to the weather. I’m ready to dedicate myself to being sure that things change,” Barney said.
Barney says he will continue until his body tells him it’s time to stop or more shelter options are put in place.
