Right 2 Dream Too Rally at City Hall

[improve]

Purpose

Waive the fines on Right 2 Dream Too!

Other details
The City of Portland's Bureau of Development Services (BDS) says R2DToo must comply with State of Oregon Recreational Campground Ordinances or pay monthly fines. The initial fine is $641.30, and doubles every two months after that.

We are not a campground. Right 2 Dream Too provides refuge and a safe space to rest or sleep undisturbed for dozens of people who are experiencing homelessness in downtown Portland at no cost to the city. Hundreds of people sleep on the streets of Portland every night, there are often no beds available at shelters, and it can take months or even years to get into transitional or permanent affordable housing.

Join us as we ask the City of Portland to waive the fines imposed on Right to Dream Too and support our work providing a safe space to rest or sleep to people in our community who would otherwise be under bridges or in doorways.

Called by the people of Right 2 Dream Too and Right 2 Survive

Right 2 Survive is a group of houseless and formerly houseless individuals dedicated to teaching about and defending the human, civil, and constitutional rights of people experiencing homelessness.

Right 2 Dream Too provides refuge and a safe space to rest or sleep undisturbed for Portland's unhoused community who cannot access affordable housing or shelter. R2DToo was established on World Homeless Action Day, October 10, 2011.
