City Hall 300 Laporte

Downtown is for Everyone!

Homeless Coalition will be protesting the City's proposed sit-lie ban on Tuesday, February 7th at City Hall, 300 Laporte Ave.

Please join us. Feel free to bring signs or use on of ours.

5-6pm -- Join us to protest outside City Hall. No Sit-Lie Ban in Fort Collins! Stop Criminalizing Homelessness!

6pm -- Head inside for an opportunity to share your thoughts during City Council's public comment.

Background: City Council has decided to consider two new proposals: a sit-lie ban in the downtown area, and an agreement with the Larimer County Detention Center to permanently reserve three spaces in the jail, to the tune of $85,000-$150,000/year, for repeat petty municipal offenders.

Our city government needs to hear from people who want downtown to remain a public space, open to all of us. We want real solutions, not just more laws that unfairly impact marginalized groups. Let's get vocal at the local level!

important dates:

February 24th Sit-in, Oak Street Plaza 3pm

March 7th--6pm City Council, 1st reading of the sit-lie ordinance (tentative).
