City Re-Writes Sit-Lie Ban, but Huge Problems Remain

Following enormous public resistance to the proposed sit-lie ban, City Council directed staff to change two of the most absurd provisions before the ordinance is voted on on March 7th. However, the amended ordinance still includes provisions that directly target unhoused people. Our community should not be passing laws that we know will be enforced unfairly!

Understanding the Sit-lie Ordinance

Sit-Lie Ban Returns to Fort Collins: Rise Up, Fight Back!

City Council is trying to push through two Homeless Criminalization Ordinances. They will include a sit/lie ban, limiting the time that someone can sit on a bench as well as reserving jail beds for people who are "repeat municipal code violators."

We need to stop this thing!

Important dates:

Tuesday, Feb 21st 6pm Regular city council meeting--come and speak against sit/lie

City Manager's Office Halts Camping Ban Reform in Fort Collins

From the beginning, the Fort Collins Homeless Coalition has fought against the Fort Collins camping ban. Coalition members have always stood up against the ban: sharing their stories; fighting their tickets; speaking out against the ban in City Council meetings; meeting with representatives from the city, police department, agencies, even the state legislature to argue against camping bans; proposing alternatives and sharing data; doing education and outreach; and most challenging of all, simply trying to exist as homeless people in Fort Collins.
