We are in a crisis situation! Wages remain low while housing becomes more and more expensive, throwing many low income people and families deeper into poverty. This causes many people to be homeless or be on the verge of homelessness. Affordable housing is in short supply creating additional stress, over burdening the community as a whole and creating friction between the housed and un-housed. This is not just a urban crisis.

In light of these problems advocates are asking the Governor and the Oregon Legislature to do the following things:
• Declare a statewide Housing State of Emergency 
• Stop the inhumane and unconstitutional sweeps when there is no place for people to go
• We demand affordable housing for all
• We demand an end to the targeting of homeless people by the police
• We demand basic services, water, trash, and toilets
• We demand that self-governing, peer run, innovative communities are allowed
