We Endorse the Homeless Bill of Rights Campaign

Our organization supports a Homeless Bill of Rights Campaign in Colorado that will create bills to protect the following rights and prohibit the enforcement of any local laws that violate these rights: (1) the Right to move freely, rest, and sleep, and protect oneself from the elements in public spaces without time-limitation that discriminates based on housing status; (2) the Right to occupy a legally parked vehicle; (3) the Right to a reasonable expectation of privacy of your property  in public space; (4) the Right to eat, share, accept, or give food in any public space in which having food is not prohibited; and *(5) the Right to 24-hour access to hygiene facilities. (*This will be for a separate bill at a later time.)
