Phone Jam in Support of Tent City

14 Aug

Friday Aug. 17th 9 am- 5pm
Phone Berry Vrbanovic Mayor and Regional Council (Regional Office) 519-575-4400 ext. 3403
Community Services Phone: 519-575-4400

For about a month people in Kitchener have set up a tent city to demand affordable housing as well as a solution to the opiate epidemic that has engulfed Kitchener in death, violence, and criminalization of poor people. Since we have set up we have been forced to move more than 5 times due to the fact that there are bylaws that criminalize people from sleeping on city property while at the same time it’s quite illegal to sleep on private property. This catch 22 forces homeless people to be criminalized simply by virtue of being homeless.

At this point in time we are asking the city to stop the criminalization of Tent City and poor people forced to sleep on the streets, house the people of tent city and implement our solution to the opiate epidemic.

This Friday join us to make these demands by calling the above numbers.
