WTTW Chicago Tonight: Chicago, Illinois Advocates Hope Impact of Supreme Court’s Homelessness Ruling Muted Locally

“Just because the Supreme Court has overturned this order doesn’t mean cities should just go into a mode of being reactionary and criminalizing people for biological necessities,” she said. “Particularly in Chicago and Illinois, I think there is a recognition that criminalization is not effective. A housing first approach is effective and that seems to be the direction that people here want to move.”
