PLEASE BOOST & SHARE:
Sweeps kill! The fact that it is a regular occurrence for a houseless person to freeze to death during winter here is appalling and should outrage all of us. Sweeps do not address the root causes of houselessness, they only add further stress to an already stressful living situation. Demand real solutions, access to permanent housing, and an end to sweeps!
Call and email city officials, but also SHOW UP Tuesday and let our houseless comrades know that we see them and we got their back.
