There was already an affordable housing shortage in Jackson County before the Almeda fire. Now many of the most affordable homes in the area — mobile homes — are lost, and hundreds more people are unsure if they can afford to stay. Niria Alicia is a climate justice organizer in southern Oregon. Her father lost his mobile home in the fire, along with 14 others he refurbished and rented out. Jocksana Corona’s family also lost their mobile home in the fire. We talk with Alicia and Corona about how their families are rebuilding.
