No Arrest For The Homeless

The Boulder County Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado  presents its 2011 Annual Meeting program:

No Arrest For The Homeless

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 2011 7:00 p.m.
CU-BOULDER – WOLF LAW BUILDING* ROOM 204

Is it unconstitutional to arrest people whose only “crime” is to be homeless with no place to sleep? Is using a blanket to keep from freezing illegal camping?

What can –or should– the government do?

A distinguished panel will discuss the plight of the homeless in Boulder and the City’s response to this growing community.

  • David Harrison, Esq., Boulder criminal defense attorney who has been representing the homeless pro bono on violations of the City’s anti-camping ordinance
  • K.C. Becker, Boulder City Council Member
  • Michael Fitzgerald, Member of Boulder’s homeless community
  • Bill Benjamin, Esq., Vice Chair, Boulder County ACLU

This event is FREE and open to the public – refreshments will be served – nominations for the Boulder County Chapter board of directors will also be taken.
