We Need Housing Not Courts (Webinar)

June 27, 2022 @ 6:00 pm

We can’t say it loud enough: Housing is a human right! But California’s current plan to address the affordable housing crisis is an Orwellian nightmare. Rather than provide people with basic needs they need to thrive, Governor Newsom is pushing to install a new court system that would force unhoused people into involuntary treatment.

Join us for an urgent discussion on the governor’s so-called “CARE Court,” a flawed proposal that, if enacted, would inflict harm on unhoused Californians.

Led by University of Southern California Law Professor Jody Armour, the live, virtual panel of civil rights and disability rights advocates will include:

  • Paul Boden, executive director of the Western Regional Advocacy Project;
  • Susan Mizner, director of the ACLU Disability Rights Program; and
  • Shonique Williams, statewide organizer for Dignity and Power Now.

Learn how you can take action to oppose this regressive measure and support local efforts for sustainable and compassionate solutions led by people who are unhoused.
