Camp Compassion is a designated area in Novato where a group of homeless people have set up camp. Anti-camp protesters (con) at the corner of 7th and Novato Blvd were met by counter-protestors (pro), including residents of Camp Compassion, activists, and other community members.

Protesters against keeping the homeless encampment carried signs including "Enforce the Damn Law" and "Sex Offender Free Zone." Counter-protesters held signs including one that had the simple acronym WWJD for "What would Jesus Do?"
