This episode features people that live in the Chinatown area of Salinas as well as a lawyer that works to defend them. We speak with homeless residents of Salinas that share a little bit of how they ended up in Chinatown and how they are receiving help from the community to get back on their feet and what else can be done to improve conditions down in Chinatown. Hear what residents in Chinatown have to say about the drought, the violence in Salinas, and what they would like people to know about Chinatown, a place that often gets a bad reputation here in Salinas. Our thanks to everyone for being our guests on this episode. Thanks to Wes White for his help in organizing the interviews and shout out to the fellas as the Salinas Underground Podcast for letting us use their portable mic to tape this episode. Hear and enjoy what will be the first of many episodes that come from Chinatown in Salinas. After listening, if you want to do more, you can always head down there to donate directly or there are other local groups such as Salinas Tent City that accept donations to give to homeless residents here in town.
