We’re Working for Our Community!
Working extensively on the statewide Right to Rest Act, surveying people who are currently homeless to gather data, working on bill language, messaging, lobbying. Members of the Fort Collins Homeless Coalition will be going to Denver to testify in favor of the bill.
Fuerza Latina is educating immigrants and allies with know your rights trainings, legal clinics with free consultation, and emergency preparedness packets. These packets are used by families in the case that a member gets picked up by immigration.
Sunday bus service is now a reality because of the efforts of BB/PTAG, Fort Collins Sustainability Group, Fort Collins Homeless Coalition, FCCAN, and the broad coalition of groups that we brought together in the Sunday Service Now Coalition.
The Fort Collins Homeless Coalition worked tirelessly to gut the proposed Sit-Lie ban ordinance in March 2017. They pressured the city to removing any of the references to sitting or lying on sidewalks or benches.
