EP93: Social Work and Squeegee Kids in Baltimore
Dr. Kyla Liggett-Creel talks with us about her work to support children and youth who squeegee car windshields at intersections in Baltimore. Many squeegee workers use the money they earn to pay for food and necessities that their parents can't afford. But many Baltimore business owners say they drive away customers.
Dr. Liggett-Creel outlines why squeegee workers have been a divisive topic in the city, and discusses her work to get their voices heard.
Dr. Liggett-Creel is an associate clinical professor at the University of Maryland School of Social Work. She leads The Collaborative: A Healing Centered Community, which partners with community groups, grassroots organizations, governmental organizations, universities, and non-profits to address equity and violence prevention in Baltimore City.
