The U.S. Senate is coming back to work today, and we need your help to let them know their first order of business should be prioritizing the lives of the American people.

The increasing incidence of persons who are unhoused in the Tri-City area must be addressed for the benefit of all—for these individuals, as well for everyone living and working in our communities.  Communities that have hundreds or even thousands of unhoused people cannot be considered to be healthy, effective or compassionate. The League of Women Voters of Fremont, Newark and Union City supports policies and services for those who are vulnerable and homeless, and who need support in meeting their basic human needs and thus, stabilizing their lives.
