OE Endorses Petition to the City Council - Modify the Camping Ban

OE Endorses Petition to the City Council – Modify the Camping Ban

Advocates for the unhoused are feeling the urgency of oncoming winter and the devastating consequences for those without shelter. There is simply no way that enough shelter is going to be available for the estimated 3,000 unhoused in our community. The only answer is for the City to modify the camping ban which criminalizes sleeping and puts those with no sanctioned place to sleep at risk of citation, arrest and confiscation of their property. 

Please click on the title post to read the petition that is going to be presented to the City Council. And please, please, please email the Council, mayorcouncilandcitymanager@ci.eugene.or.us and tell them that you support the petition to modify the camping ban.
