Voices in the Street – No Shelter for the Homeless


On Tuesday, hundreds of people participated in a rally, march and candlelight vigil at the Monroe County Courthouse Square in support of Bloomington’s
homeless population who have no safe, legal, low-barrier place to rest until the Interfaith Winter Shelter opens up in November. Voices in the Street has a three part segment to ask your friends and neighbors if they think Bloomington has a problem with the number of people experiencing homelessness, if arrests are warranted for sleeping overnight in public places, and with whom, ultimately, the problem of dealing with homelessness lies. In part one, we ask if Bloomington has a homelessness problem. In part two, we ask if people experiencing homelessness should be arrested for sleeping in public places. And in part three, we ask who should ultimately be responsible for providing for/or dealing with people experiencing homelessness.
