Come together to kick off the Homeless Bill of Right Campaign here in Colorado! The Right to Rest Act will be before the Colorado State Legislator this winter and we are standing together to tell Colorado all people deserve the Right to Rest! See Flyer for Right to Rest Festival here
We are not alone – Our Festival here in Colorado is one of many actions happening in three states and eight cities around Martin Luther King jr Day as part of the Homeless Bill of Rights Campaign Days of Action!
Denver Homeless Out Loud (DHOL) works with and for people who experience homelessness, to solve the issues that arise from the experience of homelessness. We work to help protect and advocate for dignity, rights and choices for people experiencing homelessness. To these ends, we commit our efforts toward goals affirmed and raised by homeless people, within our organization and without. We strive to add our strengths together to create ways of living in which everyone has a place they can call home.
We welcome you to join us in this work.

As a first step we conducted a sample survey to document how this law has affected the lives of the homeless, how the Denver Police Department has enforced the ordinance, and whether the additional housing and services discussed by City Council and the Mayor have been provided.
