Homeless Advocacy Policy Seminar | L47xx
This course provides an experiential learning opportunity for students to research and draft policy reports about the criminalization of homelessness. The policy reports will focus on the increasing enactment and enforcement of Colorado municipal laws that criminalize activities associated with living without housing. The course will include drafting open records requests and analyzing social science data. We will learn about how law shapes the lives of homeless people and the course will include readings about the extent of poverty and homelessness in the United States and Colorado specifically. In addition to ULW and EA, this course also fulfills the Public Interest Law requirement.
