Can a 'Homeless Bill of Rights" end the criminalization of our most vulnerable residents, restoring their basic human rights? This video gives a brief chronology of some of the 'out of sight, out of mind' law enforcement initiatives that criminalize routine, often unavoidable, behaviors by people forced to make their home on the streets such as sleeping on the sidewalk or lining up for a meal at a soup kitchen. WRAP (Western Regional Advocacy Project) works to curtail discriminatory practices and use the power of community organizing to advocate for the recognition of homeless people as human beings rather than elements of urban blight.

To join the campaign for a Homeless Bill of Rights in both California and Oregon contact WRAP at wrap@wraphome.org and they will hook you up with organizers working in both of these states or others as this movement continues to grow.
