Webcast: The story of Glory

One of East Palo Alto's last bastions of affordable housing set to close by 2020

Palo Alto Weekly journalists discuss the potential closure of Glory Mobile Home and RV Park in East Palo Alto, which housing advocates say would eliminate needed low-income housing from the city. They explore what the loss might mean for renters who have lived there for decades.
