“We don’t want to make it easy for people to be homeless.”
That is the precise reasoning behind Lakewood’s anti-homelessness ordinance – the ordinance that former Tent City resident Alex Libman was protesting when he was arrested.
In fact, barely two hours after Alex was taken into police custody, Lakewood Township ensured that his tent was demolished and his return to Tent City thereby prevented.
With no shelter in Ocean County and now the homeless being jailed, we cannot idly sit by and allow evil to prevail while good people do nothing.
Therefore, we ask you to please come out on Tuesday, July 1, 2014 in front of Ocean County Courthouse to rally against Ordinance 3-26 and the criminalization of homelessness in Lakewood and beyond.
Many thanks for all your love, prayers, and support - see you all tomorrow!
