Homelessness is a VERY big deal in our community. On the one hand, it's tragic that so many people are unhoused. But the camping on our sidewalks, in our parks and in other public paces seems out of hand, along with the obvious trash, litter and sanitation impacts. And while people want homelessness dealt with, very few people understand the big picture about homelessness - the fine points of law and constitutional issues that bear on camping and property rights.
The Fulton-El Camino Recreation and Park District has arranged for a presentation about homelessness by Kimberly Chin, an attorney with expertise on this subject. Ms. Chin has given a similar presentation at local government conferences and now our community can have direct access to the information. The talk, offered to help answer people's questions about homeless issues, will be given on Friday, September 24th from 11:00-1:00 at the Conzelmann Community Center in Howe Park (2201 Cottage Way).
It's free; there is no charge to attend.
