Shocking Statement By Service Provider (IHS)
Aug 26, 2014 — "We just think that supporting the bill sets the standard for public behavior. It isn't laws that criminalize people, it's people's behavior that criminalizes them." --Connie Mitchell, the Director of IHS (Institute for Human Services), quoted in Star-Advertiser 8/26/14
Mitchell seems to believe that refusing her shelter should be a crime. If you disagree with her abusive, inhumane, and disconnected statement from a service provider influenced by big mainland hotel corporations, please submit your testimony in opposition to the City and IHS's plan to criminalize our local families and individuals who have fallen on hard times. (Instructions to submit online included in the Event Page listed, or come in persons and speak your mind!)

Deadline to submit testimony is the end of 8/27/14
