Dear brothers and sisters,
Every person is created in the image of God. Many of these persons are being oppressed and persecuted simply because of their economic status. It would be of great help if you would help promote a Homeless Bill of Rights for the State of California. Below is a link to a petition started by Homeless advocates in Palo Alto who are apposing a local Vehicle Habitation Ordinance. The petition is requesting that the California Legislator enact a Homeless Bill of Rights patterned after the example provided in the petition and that of Rhode Islands. It would be greatly appreciated if you would sign this petition to enact a Homeless Bill of Rights patterned after Rhode Island’s.
Please forward the petition to your friends and post the attached flyer to inform the homeless and poor in your area of the petition.
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.” Proverbs 31:8
RELUCTANT TO SIGN? Ask yourself this question, “If I were homeless and living out of a car and the town where I was living was going to take my car away from me solely because I was homeless would I sign this petition, would I want others to sign this petition?”
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ ” Mathew 25
If we can get every person who signs the petition to get just one other person to sign the petition who has not signed the petition we can help hundreds of thousands of people.
Thank you much and God Bless.
Committee for the California Homeless Bill of Rights
