Activists Give St. Paul Mayor List of Demands

Description (Dublin Core)

On Sunday, activists and community members hand-delivered a letter to St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter's home signed by over 500 constituents and 25 local organizations demanding the city stop evicting people from encampments during inclement weather and the COVID-19 pandemic.

The letter is asking city officials to meet these requests:

➡️ Convene an emergency St. Paul City Council meeting to address these issues

➡️ Place a moratorium on enforcement of any illegal camping ordinance, to last the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic

➡️ Halt the clearing and disposal of tents and other sheltering materials to ensure that unhoused people do not lose what may be their only present means to self-quarantine and practice social distancing

➡️ Adhere to the existing statewide eviction moratorium

➡️ Follow best practices outlined by the National Homelessness Law Center
