End Criminalizing the Homeless
Don't punish those in need
Criminalization causes Homeless People to Suffer
Criminalizing the homeless is a waste of time and resource
100 cities banned sitting or laying down in public places
A possible solution to solve the problem with obsessive numbers in homelessness and the increase in law breaking by those whom are homeless would be to ultimately tackle the root cause of homelessness which is low wages and a lack of affordable housing and by improving support services like TANF, housing vouchers and health care. Also cutting out the laws that some cities have put in place that make it hard for the homeless to find shelter or food. This would cut down the amount of people we see on the streets and lower the amount of people that are being criminalized for trying to survive.
