What: Denver Right to Survive Campaign Kick off Picnic Potluck
When: October 27th, 12pm
Where: Civic Center Park (by Bannock, between Colfax and 14th ave)
On Monday October 22nd 2018 the Denver Elections Division announced that the Denver Right to Survive Initiative has gathered 7,026 valid Denver registered voter signatures, far over enough to qualify for the ballot. The Denver Elections Division spent the last three weeks reviewing the over 9000 signatures community members gathered from voters calling for support of these basic rights and protections for homeless people trying to survive.

To kick off the campaign after this announcement, the Denver Right to Survive Initiative committee will be holding a Picnic Potluck on Saturday October 27th at 12noon at Civic Center Park near the City and County building. All are invited to bring a blanket to sit on for the picnic — the very act of sitting on this blanket is currently a violation of the “camping ban” this initiative will overturn. All are also invited to bring food for the potluck to share. There will be speakers, sign making, and ways to plug into the Denver Right to Survive Campaign.

The Denver Right to Survive Initiative is monumental. This is the first ever ballot initiative in the nation protecting the basic rights of people experiencing homelessness. Never before has any city or state run a ballot initiative like this.

This initiative protects the basic human rights of people to sleep, sit, use cover, sleep in their vehicle, share food, and have privacy of their property. This initiative enables people without housing to survive in Denver when they have nowhere to live but the streets.
