CSH Joins the National Coalition for Housing Justice to Ask the Biden Administration to End Federal Police Responses to Homelessness

CSH joins the National Coalition for Housing Justice (NCHJ) to urge the Biden-Harris administration to cease using federal police in addressing homelessness.

This case underscores an alarming trend of escalating violence against unhoused individuals at the hands of federal agents, further exacerbated by the criminalization of homelessness.
