On Nov. 14, the Yale Hunger and Homelessness Action Project, a student organization focused on tackling hunger and homelessness in New Haven, hosted a Zoom panel to discuss policing, incarceration and homelessness.

During the event, panelists spoke about how each of these issues are propagated and interrelated. The array of panelists included Kimberly Hart, a founding member of grassroots advocacy organization Witnesses to Hunger; Elaine Kolb, a disability and diversity rights activist; Hope Metcalf, a lecturer and researcher at Yale Law School and executive director of the Orville H. Schell, Jr. Center for International Human Rights; and Alden Woodcock, executive director of EMERGE Connecticut, a nonprofit organization that aids recently incarcerated individuals as they transition back into society. The discussion was moderated by Nellie Conover-Crockett ’22, outreach chair on the YHHAP board.
