 Jewel on the Importance of Housing

Jewel also stopped by The Talk but not for a performance. She was on the show to talk about ReThink, a campaign that asks Americans to think twice about their views on public housing. It urges people to think about how those public houses actually benefit the community.

Studies have shown that most Americans believe every citizen deserves a decent and safe place to live. But the same studies also found most Americans do not want to live near public housing or even have public housing in their neighborhood.
