Sleeping Ban Debate on Community Television
On November 11th, Vice Mayor Ryan Coonerty, Civil Rights Attorney Kate Wells and local ACLU representative Don Zimmerman debated the Santa Cruz Sleeping Ban on Voices from the Village, a live community television show with call-ins and public questions.

Santa Cruz municipal code 6.36.010c, the camping ban, aptly called the "Sleeping Ban” by activists, states that setting-up any sleeping or cooking equipment anywhere that is not intended for human occupancy with the intent to remain in that location overnight, is against the law.

Tim Rumford writes, "I have never seen this type of dialog happen in Santa Cruz. Vice Mayor Ryan Coonerty came across as a representative of business, with no real compassion for the plight of people in poverty. His lack of knowledge concerning fines, available shelter and financing astounds me." imc_video.gifRead More and Watch the Show
