I’ll be speaking on a panel at the 2019 National Forum on the Human Right to Housing, to be held June 5-6 in Washington D.C. This year’s forum focuses on the recent Martin v. Boise decision, which establishes that people experiencing homelessness cannot be punished for sleeping in public in the absence of alternatives.
In the panel discussion “Policing Beyond Martin: How Law Enforcement Can Support Decriminalization Efforts”, I will be joined by Detective Debbie Ramsey (Ret.) (Baltimore Police Department), Judge Cylenthia LaToye Miller (36th District, Michigan) and Nicola Smith-Kea (Arnold Ventures). We will discuss how community partners can join together to provide Housing, Not Handcuffs to people living on the streets.
If you would like to attend, tickets to the forum are still available here: https://nlchp.org/forum-registration/
