Abstract or Summary
  • In the United States, the state of housing and the lack thereof has been declared a national crisis. In response, cities have taken measures to police behaviors that are associated with what they perceive to be disorder and decay. These behaviors are also commonly associated with houselessness. Laws that criminalize houselessness can be viewed as issues of social and economic sustainability and have faced scrutiny for violations of human and constitutional rights. Criminalization creates and exacerbates the cycle of poverty, making life more difficult for people experiencing houselessness. Any action taken to address issues of houselessness must be multi-faceted, holistic, and considering the needs of the houseless community. Key Words: criminalization, homelessness, houselessness, sustainability
