Camping Ban enforcement is up 500% since March.
Watch these sample videos of what is happening every day now in Denver…
You cannot sweep away homelessness. We need rest. We are not “camping,” we are surviving. The city can’t force us into the shelters as if they were a new kind of jail. We have a right to survive.
We are still demanding the Mayor call for an Immediate End to the Sweeps and the Confiscation of People’s Belongings.
Furthermore as a city we must…
1) Repeal the Camping Ban and Pass a Right to Survive
2) Instead of spending city money criminalizing homelessness allocate public funds for homes and underutilized public spaces for alternative housing models
