Action Alert: Waive the Fines on Right 2 Dream Too!

The City says Right 2 Dream Too (R2DToo) must comply with Recreational Campground Ordinances or pay a $641.30 fine every month. R2DToo is NOT a recreational campground. It provides emergency shelter for dozens of people every night (at no cost to the City).

Three ways YOU can help:
1. Take ONE MINUTE to contact Commissioner Dan Saltzman.
Tell him you support Right 2 Dream Too. Waive the fines. Lift the camping ban.
E-mail: dan@portlandoregon.gov
Telephone: (503) 823-4151

2. Take ONE HOUR and join R2DToo on

City Hall, S.W. Fourth and Madison Avenues, Portland

3. Keep this thought for the rest of your life:
HOUSING IS A HUMAN RIGHT!
