Hundreds of San Francisco community leaders and organizations are joining an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in regards to the case that could overturn the legal barriers prohibiting our city from addressing our homelessness crisis & enforcing our homeless camping laws. We are submitting an amicus curiae brief to the U.S. Supreme Court arguing that the Court should review—and ultimately reverse—the recent decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in City of Grants Pass v. Jackson (read more about the case here). The decision prohibits local governments from enforcing common sense public safety ordinances to address the homelessness crisis. Our brief would argue that the Supreme Court's review in this case is critical to defeating misguided legal barriers facing San Francisco and, more broadly, to enabling Western cities to address the homelessness crisis that is endangering residents, business, and homeless people themselves.
It would be incredibly meaningful if you would be a co-signatory on our amicus brief. If you're joining on behalf of an organization, neighborhood association, or businesses, please include the name of the group you represent in your response.
After you fill out the form, we will reach back out to you with the final amicus brief language for your official confirmation. We will not include your name on the amicus brief without written and official approval.
