After a 4-11 season and weeks of cryptic social media posts, star QB Deshaun Watson has officially demanded a trade from the Houston Texans. Not even a year removed from signing a 4-year, $156 million contract, Watson is fed up with the organizational dysfunction and wants to jump ship before it sinks completely.

While reading Matthew Desmond’s Evicted, LJ Seniors explored the challenges that communities are facing in terms of housing. The class was excited by an opportunity to support the Emanuel Displaced Persons Association, a local organization of those affected by Portland’s Emanuel Hospital expansion forced removal. To learn more about the project, the class met with Ed Johnson, director of litigation at the Oregon Law Center. We were also joined by Byrd, “a North Portland native and founding member of EDPA2.” Together we made a PSA video to spread more awareness and information about what is happening right now.
