We find this 5107 bill vastly devastating to the people of Washington, incredibly unnecessary & underestimated in how inhumane, it is to add a misdemeanor criminality to local citizens of Seattle, and/or Washington State for houselessness.

That should be receiving a bill, in their own support against houseless and/or homelessness. This bill like others that have come before it, that criminalize humanity, with the incorrect outlook that they are at fault for systematic injustices, which allowed a snowball effect of their livelihoods to have compiled their efforts to a point of houselessness, and potentially in turn to become criminals due to a lack of effort on the city, government officials, and law enforcements part to serve and protect its people.

Rather than brutalize, reject, and mistreat anyone or anything that isn’t wealthy or property(s). We stand against this 5107 bill, in effort to protect the people, that are the back bone of this city, and to set an example for what doing the correct thing actually looks like. Anyone who harms houseless and/or homeless people should be the ones who are in fact criminalized, and not the other way around.

The climate of the world currently will leave many people in these situations, with no where to go, no employment, no security financially from our cities, state, or federal governments as history has already shown over the course of what seemingly will be another year battling COVID - with little to no assurance, but even more so assistance to begin with. Families, parents & children will be effected by this for their entire lives. Not just today or tomorrow. Stop the 5107 bill, immediately.
