People march to protest the cruel deaths of two homeless men who died at the entrance to Sacramento City Hall as they huddled without blankets. Homeless people seek cover under the building’s overhang to escape the cold. According to estimates, on average one homeless person dies each week in this region. Is this the kind of society we want? The government owns plenty of vacant homes. We must force them to recognize the human right to housing and act on it.
