On Saturday, April 1, 2017, participants will create a Homeless encampment near the Whitehouse, and at city and state legislative buildings across the country. Bring tents, bring signs, bring your friends and families and stand up for safe, decent and affordable housing.

Here's the platform:

1. Preserve funding and create further local, state and national Housing Trust Funds that fund housing solely for extremely low to moderate income households.
2. Stop ordinances, policies and practices that 1) criminalize and harrass people who are unhoused, 2) promote racial discrimination, or 3) prevent equal treatment of immigrants and those who identify as LGBTQ, especially in access to housing, employment and healthcare.
3. Ensure that safety net programs like food assistance, health care and emergency housing are available to all of those who experience the loss of stable housing.
