Ever wonder what are the physical, mental, emotional, and safety effects are on people living without housing under the “camping ban?”


This study examines the public health consequences of criminalizing homelessness in Denver. The study reports on a poll of 484 homeless individuals in Denver, regarding their experiences with “quality of life” policing, and how those policing practices are affecting their personal health and quality of life.


Come join us on Saturday April 13th as we present these findings, feast on delicious food, and receive a copy of the report. This report comes out two days before ballots drop where the people of Denver will be voting on the Right to Survive initiative 300 to over turn the camping ban and end criminalization of homelessness.
