Homeless advocate Kathryn Xian is the Executive Director of the Pacific Alliance to Stop Slavery. She's skeptical of the city's Sand Island proposal and calls it a quick fix.

Honolulu residents will get an opportunity to sound off on a new plan to temporarily move homeless people to Sand Island. The city will hold a community meeting tonight to discuss the proposal…one of several aimed at dealing with Hawai‘i’s growing homeless problem. HPR’s Molly Solomon has more.

The public is invited to attend a meeting on the proposed Sand Island Housing First Transition Center…It’ll be held tonight at 6 PM at Pu‘uhale Elementary School.

The Board of Land and Natural Resources will also take up the issue on Friday, at a meeting to decide whether or not to approve the city's plan.
