Event Type: Meeting
What would the Homeless Bill of Rights do? How would it affect homeless people in California, or closer to home in the Haight Ashbury?

The bill helps protect homeless people from discrimination in employment, voting, and when seeking housing or public services. The bill would also protect homeless people’s rights to exist in public space and to engage in life-sustaining activities like sleeping, eating, sharing food, and access to safe bathrooms and clean water, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Do you want to end homelessness in San Francisco? If you do, then you have a lot in common with homeless San Franciscans: no one wants to end homelessness more than they do. And while homelessness still exists, homeless people must be treated with dignity and respect. Come hear about AB 5.

Invited Speakers: Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, Paul Boden, Western Regional Advocay Project, and Collen Rivecca, St. Anthony's
