Evictions (part one)
Evictions is a dark secret in the Pacific Islander community of the U.S. Many feel ashamed and embarrassed having lost our homes and sense of safety. But in our law podcast, we feel we should tackle the subject head on, discuss its impact on our community, and free ourselves from the stigma.  Please take a listen, respond by voicemail, and visit us on Facebook to air out ideas and reactions. Let's problem solve together!
