In People Behind the Plans episode 38, Courtney talks with Nithya Raman, an urban planner and Los Angeles City Council member. Prior to holding elected office, Nithya co-founded SELAH Neighborhood Homeless Coalition, a non-profit dedicated to responding to homelessness in a proactive and compassionate way. She and Courtney discuss how the current state of the housing market impacts the homelessness crisis in L.A., leading with an advocate’s heart, and whether more planners should consider running for elected office.
