HOW TO ATTEND FORUM ON HOMLESSNESS & POVERTY IN WASH., D.C. - JUNE 6-7, 2017 (782 hits)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE FROM NATIONAL LAW CENTER ON HOMELESSNESS AND POVERTY EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR MARIA FOSCARINIS!

Dear Friends —

The Housing Not Handcuffs Campaign (http://housingnothandcuffs.org) will be the focus of this year’s National Forum on the Human Right to Housing (https://www.nlchp.org/forum_2017), and I hope you will join us there.

It’s an urgent and critically important topic. How will the change in Administration affect the Campaign—and our work to end and prevent homelessness overall? Many of us are gravely concerned about proposed dramatic cuts (http://tracking.etapestry.com/…/11974440…/73841664/0/54591/…) in funding for housing, health care and other social programs, as well as announced plans to roll back criminal justice reform.

But we are also encouraged by increased activism, including at the state and local level. In Delaware, for example, Campaign members are pushing forward with the Homeless Individuals’ Bill of Rights (http://tracking.etapestry.com/…/11974440…/73841665/0/54591/…), introduced in March, to protect individuals experiencing homelessness from discrimination while in public and while seeking employment, housing, and temporary shelter

In Colorado, while the Right to Rest Act (http://tracking.etapestry.com/…/11974440…/73841666/0/54591/…) again did not win enough votes to be reported out committee, our regional and local partners and Campaign members are already planning next year’s efforts. And the court challenge to Denver’s Urban Camping Ban (http://tracking.etapestry.com/…/11974440…/73841667/0/54591/…) scored an important win when the judge granted homeless plaintiffs’ motion for class certification.

There is much we can do in the courts, at the state and local level to move forward, as we also, of course.

More details on the Forum and Registration are here: https://www.nlchp.org/forum_2017.

I hope to see you there!
