Reverse the Albuquerque Panhandling Ordinance!

This petition had 157 supporters

The Panhandling Ordinance criminalizes community members in the city of Albuquerque who panhandle, sell or advertise in street intersections. The intuitive also criminalizes community members who are in contact with people who are panhandling, advertising or fundraising in street intersections. With hundreds of Albuquerque residents without proper housing, food and clothing we are allowing Albuquerque City Council to attack the fundraising culture, panhandling survival and houseless community without providing enough housing, substance abuse centers and services to people experiencing mental health issues. We demand the reverse of the panhandling ordinance and demand that more resources stated above be proposed immediately.
