Event description

Description

Sleeping. Eating. Covering oneself to stay warm. Storing one’s belongings. Urinating. Things housed people do every day without notation or consequence. But for people experiencing homelessness, laws criminalizing these and many other acts of survival are not only prominent but increasing across the nation. This panel will discuss the cycle of homeless crimes, services in jail, bond laws, the Urban Camping Ban, and the severe challenges people punished for crimes of survival face upon exiting jail.

In 2019, let's IGNITE THOUGHT and INCITE CHANGE through thoughtful conversations with leaders in the field of housing, homelessness, and poverty.

Our 2019 Education Series is FREE and open to the public. For special accomodations (we request one week's notice) or questions, please email Meredith Ritchie at mritchie@coloradocoalition.org.

These educational events are part of an eleven-part series of topics impacting people experiencing or at risk of homelessness in our communities, guided by audience interest and questions. Click here to see other Education Series topics in 2019.
