Response to DDPHE Board’s Questions on Sweeps

The Board of Denver Department of Public Health and Environment (DDPHE) wrote DDPHE leadership asking a series of excellent questions about their role in the sweeps and with the homeless community. 


DDPHE’s response was filled with lies, omissions, misleading claims, and offensive language regarding unhoused people.


We in Denver Homeless Out Loud sent DDPHE’s Board the following letter responding to their poignant questions and DDPHE’s response. 


We are grateful to DDPHE Board for calling DDPHE to question on these issues and hopeful this will lead to accountability for DDPHE in doing their job.
