On August 18th 2021 at 10:30am we will be presenting our street report ‘Swept to Nowhere’ to the Safety, Housing, Education, and Homelessness Committee of City Council. This presentation will be both in person at the City and County Building in the Council Chambers, and virtually at https://zoom.us/webinar/register
All are welcome to attend!
This report shows how sweeps have been completely ineffective in connecting unhoused people with housing or addressing the health and sanitation needs they are supposed to address. The experiences of the 150 unhoused people who answered this survey make it very clear that what the city is doing is insane and causing great harm. The report also gives 16 recommendations. This is the City Council’s chance to take action to implement these recommendations.
