Cleaning up after the San Francisco Pride March

 Nearly one million people were at this Sunday’s Pride March in San Francisco. It’s one of the biggest events in the city — but, after all is said and done, who cleans it all up?

All week long, we've been playing this sound, and asking you to guess what exactly it is and where exactly in the Bay Area we recorded it.

There are at least 7,000 homeless people in San Francisco each night, and only enough shelter space to house a small fraction of them. This is one of the reasons San Francisco recently held the first Town Hall to End Homelessness in which city officials and community leaders renewed their commitment to do just that.

But if you’re going to talk ways to end homelessness in San Francisco, why not start by talking to the people with the most experience?
