Compassion Seattle Statement

 

As The Lived Experience Coalition we are for supportive services and outreach to connect to and get our unsheltered relatives housed, we do not support any legislation, charter amendments, or ordinances that increase civil or criminal penalties for folks experiencing homelessness in any capacity, especially any penalties relating to them camping.

We would like to officially be on the record stating that we do not support Compassion Seattle as we believe that consistent outreach, relationship building, and induction into permanent supportive housing is the correct path and that no punitive tools or measures are necessary in addressing this crisis.
