A UC Berkeley homeless study breaks down the anti-homeless laws in the 58 most populous California cities into four categories: (1) standing, sitting, and resting in public places; (2) sleeping, camping, and lodging in public places, including in vehicles; (3) begging and panhandling; and (4) food sharing. Quoted from that study: “All 58 most populous California cities have at least one municipal code restricting daytime activities like standing, sitting, and resting.” San Francisco, Palo Alto, and Santa Cruz are just a few of the cities that have passed Sit-Lie Ordinances, laws that restrict sitting or lying down in public places. Even in our own San Jose, impromptu homeless feedings are banned due to “health concerns”.

If you agree that measures should be taken to protect basic homeless rights through legislation, please take a minute of your time to sign the petition below.
