Students in LOS 298 have put together an informative and thorough set of materials emphasizing three critical concerns in Portland, Maine: homelessness, affordable housing, and gun control. The homelessness collection covers research on the reality and challenges of homeless people. The affordable housing unit is a well-researched resource that provides a variety of housing possibilities for low-income households. The gun control resources offer deep dives into legislative documents and statistics that represent the complicated nature of gun control discussions. These educational tools aim to increase awareness and spark important debates about the community issues in Portland Maine.
