Reporter Roundup for September 9

Mental Health, HHH | September 9

On the September 9 edition of the Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters discuss mental health, Proposition HHH financing and new diversity rules for the Oscars. 

Experts say the mental health of many Southern Californians is taking a one-two punch with COVID-19 and the wildfires right now. Robert Garrova discusses ways to navigate the pressures we are experiencing. 

Many homeless housing developments partially funded by Proposition HHH are running behind schedule, according to a new report. Matt Tinoco reports on what this means for this complex financing system, and ultimately, what it could mean for Los Angeles’ unhoused residents. 

Hollywood continues to hire few women and people of color despite ongoing calls to increase diversity. John Horn talks about the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ new rules encouraging diversity hiring for Oscar contenders.
