Purpose

This Wednesday Portland City Council will vote on a resolution that will allow small scale overnight camping in vehicles. It's a great step, but we need more.

While the council is voting to allow car camping, BDS decided to to fine Right 2 Dream Too for violating the zoning code. Hundreds of houseless people have found safety and a place to rest at R2D2 since October 10, 2011 at no cost to the city. The fines could put R2D2 out of existence.

Testify in support of small scale overnight sleeping AND MORE!
  • Legalize camping in Portland
  • Lift the fines on Right 2 Dream Too
  • Support Right 2 Survive
  • Universal affordable housing
  • Jobs

Get there at 9am to sign up to speak or just come to show your support. Meeting starts at 9:30am.

HOUSING IS A HUMAN RIGHT!
