GUIDING PRINCIPLES

  • We can end and prevent homelessness

  • Public policymakers and the community must address the underlying issues of structural racism and its intersections with class, gender, gender identify, sexual orientation, age, disabilities, and the political, economic and social structures that create hunger, homelessness, the lack of decent affordable housing, and disinvestment in neighborhoods of color

  • Safe, decent, affordable and accessible housing, healthy food and access to quality healthcare are basic human rights

  • People experiencing homelessness should not be criminalized, or otherwise deprived of their rights, due to their lack of stable housing

  • Coalition-building with community members and public eduction are effective catalysts for change

  • Currently and formerly homeless people must be active and equal participants in decision making bodies that address the issue of homelessness
