Stop fining Right To Dream Too

      Portland, OR

There are over 1,700 homeless in Portland on any given night, without access to shelter. Right to Dream Too is a group of homeless individuals who have leased a piece of private property and set up a camp for members and guests who agree to follow a strict code of conduct. The City is trying to fine them out of existence, rather than deal with the issue publicly.  Mayor Adams and the City Council should reach out to R2D2 and explore options for the future, rather than ignore the issue.

      It's terrible enough to be homeless - taking away offered space for people to at least have shelter is subhuman and despicable. To charge them for crazy ordinances is disgusting. They are literally trying to take food out of their mouths and hope from their hearts.

      Because I believe the community of Right to Dream should have that right, 'to dream'. And I am tired of people that don't "fit" the picture of what is considered the social "norm" of how you are "suppose" to be living being treated as lesser citizens.
