In 2019, MDLC worked closely with other stakeholders to ensure the defeat of the Right to Survive Initiative.

This initiative would have:  1) prohibits Denver from enforcing essential laws that protect public safety, 2) allows people to occupy all outdoor public places, including parks and sidewalks, indefinitely, 3) eliminates all park curfews, 4) allows for people to permanently park and live in cars, and 4) allows for unfettered distribution of food in public spaces.

MDLC remains committed to working with the City and stakeholders to find meaningful and appropriate solutions to Denver’s homelessness challenges.
