Murder Under "Color of Law" - Legal Lynching Within the "New Jim Crow"

Our United States of America is said to be governed by "The Rule of Law" - provisions within the Fourth and the Fourteenth Amendment to our United States Constitution as well as Title 42 of our U.S. Code, Section 1983, exist to protect the lives and the property of all United States citizens from unlawful, illegal, unconstitutional intrusion, by law enforcement agents and quasi-law-enforcement agents acting under so-called "color of law."

The Difference Literacy Made.

Dear Friends and Allies -

As you may have seen, on Wednesday, September 18th, at 7pm, we'll be having a dedication and opening party for the Jean Rice Liberation Reference Library! Conceptualized, curated, and run by homeless New Yorkers, where people experiencing homelessness can educate themselves and others, this library will provide homeless New Yorkers with the tools to change their lives, and to change the world.

We're suing Uncle Sam for HOUSING - here are the photos and press coverage!

The Federal Government is obligated by law to invest money in the National Housing Trust Fund, which should go inro housing for folks hit hard by the financial crisis - as well as folks hit hard by centuries of institutional racism and oppression!

But that money is MIA.

In fact, over $380 million is missing from the trust fund.

That's why we're suing the Federal Housing Finance Agency.

And that's why we had this press conference yesterday.

Why are we suing the federal government? Kendall lays it out.

Today, Tuesday July 9th, Picture the Homeless and our partners in Right to the City and the National Low Income Housing Coalition filed a national lawsuit agains

Homeless People Tell the Federal Government: KEEP YOUR PROMISE!

The federal government is breaking the law. They're sitting on over $380 million that SHOULD HAVE BEEN SPENT ON HOUSING.

So Picture the Homeless - along with our partners all over the country - are DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

This Tuesday, July 9th, at 2pm, we hope you'll join us for a rally and press conference outside Grand Central Terminal announcing THE SUPER AWESOME SECRET NEXT STEP in our fight to get the government to honor its word and fund housing!!!!

GOLIATH IS BLEEDING: Bloomberg finally loses a fight.

Finally, Bloomberg has lost a fight.

The passage of the Community Safety Act marks one of the biggest losses Bloomberg has suffered in three ill-gotten terms as Mayor - and it came on the same day as the Council voted to override Bloomberg's veto of Paid Sick Leave, another major fight he just lost.

And this once-unassailable Mayor simply does not know how to handle defeat. And now the media is finally calling him on it.

We fight hard, but we party harder.

We did it: we passed both CSA bills with veto-proof majorities! POLICE REFORM HAS FINALLY COME TO NYC. 

Homeless Organizing Academy Graduation - thoughts and pictures!

On Friday, June 28th, our Homeless Organizing Academy held a beautiful and moving graduation ceremony.

"It meant a lot," said graduating Academy student and PTH member Pedro Cabrera. "All the instructors had something powerful and personal to say about their students, and everybody got emotional. A lot of times, people don't feel comfortable showing their emotions, but this graduation ceremony brought it out."

WE WON!!! Police Reform Comes to NYC; Homeless Civil Rights Warriors Respond!!

People - we did it.
