The latest on Mass. and Cass, city's plan for tents

Download Audio

We begin the week at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Melnea Cass Boulevard in Boston, where the city — despite a lawsuit from the ACLU of Massachusetts — is continuing to remove the tent city there.

This as the makeshift courtroom in Suffolk County Jail continues to process some people living there who have outstanding warrants — with mixed outcomes around housing and treatment.

We hear from Marty Martinez, Chief of Health and Human Services for the City of Boston. And WBUR Senior Correspondent, Deborah Becker, who has spent the day at Mass. and Cass.

This segment aired on November 8, 2021.
