Effective City Council Lobbying: Fighting the Sit-Lie Ban


The Fort Collins Homeless Coalition and the Fort Collins Community Action Network have been lobbying/fighting city council for years. We've learned a great deal from our victories and even more from our mistakes. We are pulling together an night of information and brainstorming to share effective strategies, go over basic city council guidelines, and fine-tune our messaging about the current fight of the sit lie ban. Using the ongoing battle of the sit-lie ban as a case study in community activism, we'll be discussing effective strategies to influence local policy, build an in-depth understanding of city government, and become more effective activists.

Everyone who opposes the criminalization of homelessness is invited. Come be a part of the struggle!
