Rhode Island adopts homeless bill of rights: Do we need one?

download Rhode Island adopts homeless bill of rights: Do we need one?

Some believe the homeless deserve special protection, in fact their own bill of rights. The Rhode Island law is designed to “affirm”  the rights of the homeless and prevent discrimination against them at a time when cities, including Philadelphia, San Francisco and St. Louis, have passed ordinances targeting the homeless or beefed up existing regulations.

Simply put, local advocates for the homeless say, their goal is to house away rather than arrest away the problem, to solve it rather than “criminalize” homelessness.
