In its very first policy vote of the new year, the Duluth City Council has unanimously adopted our Homeless Bill of Rights resolution! More than 100 people packed the council chambers to witness the historic vote.
This was a resolution of intent, and sets the stage for the development of an ordinance, as well as directing the city's Human Rights Commission to focus on housing and homelessness issues. The Commission reports directly to the City Council. We have a lot of work to do, but this is a great start! We will keep you posted!
