A look at Sacramento’s “right to housing” proposal

Heard on:
A homeless man named Mike walks through a "safe ground" encampment in 2009 in Sacramento, California.

SACRAMENTO, CA - AUGUST 26: A homeless man named Mike walks through a "Safe Ground" encampment August 26, 2009 in Sacramento, California. Over 30 homeless men and women are hoping that Sacramento police will not follow through on threats to evict them from a plot of private land where they have pitched tents in an effort to have a safe place to sleep at night, despite the Sacramento city ordinance that prohibits anyone from camping on public or private land. Prominent attorney Mark Merin, who has been an advocate for homeless rights, has allowed the group of homeless people to use his land for Safe Ground since the city of Sacramento has yet to come up with a viable solution to house the city's homeless population.
