Read this wonderful essay from Vijay Das, which includes:
Over the last few years, there has been a 60% increase in laws criminalizing public sleeping and a 119% increase in laws prohibiting living in one’s vehicle nationwide. More than one-third of cities prohibit loitering. California cities are particularly harsh. Since 2010, California cities enacted 55 similar laws, which overwhelmingly target homeless people.
This trend is cruel and inhumane. It’s also wasteful.
And thanks, Sherry, for the link.
