HOW VOTING RIGHTS FOR PEOPLE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS NEED PROTECTION! (428 hits)


For Immediate Release From NLCHP!


Voting Rights for People Experiencing Homelessness During the COVID-19 Crisis

As citizens of this country, participation in the electoral process is our primary method for voicing our concerns about the issues we hold dear, the conditions that impact us, and it is the way we challenge America to conform to its higher ideals expressed in the Constitution. Voting encompasses all of this. The vote gives us a voice.

People experiencing homelessness deserve the right to use their voice—unimpeded. People experiencing homelessness should not be barred from weighing in on the issues that matter most to them. Especially with COVID-19 threatening millions with evictions, misinformation and structural barriers may prevent this if we do not actively work to share people’s rights and ensure they can be enforced.

NLCHP discussed the importance of helping people experiencing homelessness exercise their right to vote and provided tools and resources to address those rights.
