Mayor de Blasio, Wake Up and Build a Solution to Homelessness

Mayor de Blasio won re-election handily, promising in his victory speech to make New York City the fairest city in America. It’s a bold vision — one he’s soon going to make a trip to Iowa to try to sell on the national stage.

But with 62,000 homeless New Yorkers (including more than 23,000 children) sleeping in shelters each night and thousands more on the streets, there is a lot of work to do to make it real.
