The City Council committee on Executive Matters and Legal Affairs is meeting next week to discuss several bills that would expand the ineffective and inhuman sit/lie "nuisance law" policy. Bills 83, 87 & 88 need to be publicly opposed so our elected officials know that their constituents want a real solution to the issue of houselessness, and not further criminalization. Even if you cannot attend, please submit written testimony. The council needs to hear empathy, true compassion and a strong call for reform from all across the island. If you don't have time to write testimony, you can still OPPOSE the bills with a simple click of a button:
All 9 council members sit on this committee. Call your council member today, tomorrow or Monday and urge them to vote against these bills.
