People experiencing homelessness in the city of Denver are being violently attacked and having property confiscated and damaged by your authority. There are not enough sanitation stations and portable restroom facilities for people who are experiencing homelessness in our city. During this pandemic, and the recent spike of cases, we must act now in order to save lives. These are temporary solutions that help mitigate the risk of the spread of Covid-19 and reduce the risk of death among the unhoused.

HUD estimates that on any given night there is slightly over 40,000 homeless veterans sleeping on the streets of Denver. “Thank you for your service” just doesn’t seem like enough today. Perhaps a message to the Mayor calling for better services for our homeless neighbors should be done ASAP.

Take Action:

Email or Voicemail the Mayor and tell him to end the sweeps, provide sanitation and outdoor restrooms, and safe outdoor space for unhoused neighbors NOW! https://www.denvergov.org/content/denvergov/en/mayors-office/contact-the-mayor.html
