HOMELESS CIVIL RIGHTS 

Advocacy Priorities:

  • Campaign to limit the City's and County's Ban of homeless people being within 500 feet of "critical infrastructure" project

  • Partner with civil rights lawyers to challenge the constitutionality of Measure O

  • Campaign to pressure the City and County to stop towing homeless people's vehicles - and instead have the City and County fund a program where they partner with local mechanics to fix homeless peoples vehicles and bring their registration up to date

  • Advocacy to include homelessness to Sacramento City's Non-Discrimination & Equality Municipal Code;

  • Stop the Law Enforcement Homeless Encampment Raids Campaign:  SRCEH defines law enforcement sweeps as a range of activities from the informal “move along orders” that are often threatening i.e. “or else”;  to the formal – the forcible removal of people and campsites including the destruction of people’s property, necessities for survival, valuables, personal documents including identification and sometimes medications. Finally, this includes towing homeless people’s vehicles and RV’s.

  • ​Moratorium to the County's anti-camping ordinance until enough affordable housing units are created in our region. This would include protection of the property of homeless people seized by law enforcement;

  • Oppose any efforts to criminalize homeless people including anti-homeless laws such as anti-panhandling ordinances;

  • Continue to monitor Sacramento Park Rangers monthly anti-camping      citations and homeless camps closed;

  • Continue to facilitate the Sacramento Services Not Sweeps Coalition

  • Continue to participate in National House Keys Not Handcuffs Campaign
