The Supreme Court’s decision leaves intact the ruling from the Ninth Circuit, which concluded if a homeless person has no option to sleep indoors, a local government cannot cite him or her for violating an ordinance disallowing sleeping outside in a public space.
Attendees will learn what the Ninth Circuit ruling means for local governments of all sizes, inside and outside of the Ninth Circuit.
Webinar speakers will include:
- Anna Joyce, Markowitz Herbold, Portland, Oregon
- Harry Wilson, Markowitz Herbold, Portland, Oregon
- Valerie Flores, City of Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California
- Steve Berg, National Alliance to End Homelessness, Washington D.C.
Strategies for Addressing Homelessness
The League of California Cities hosted a webinar
earlier this month, addressing how the Supreme Court’s decision on homelessness affects California communities.
The “Strategies for Addressing Homelessness: Policies and Enforcement Issues,” which the League hosted on Jan. 28, included an analysis of the Martin v. City of Boise
decision and what that means for cities. For those who missed the webinar or would like to view it again, a recording is available online
