Take Action on Local Addiction, Houselessness, & Mental Health Issues

Sign the Petition: Support A Washoe County SafeGround

From the ‘Dedicate Land to a SafeGround in Washoe County‘ petition:

Acting in Community Together in Organizing Northern Nevada (ACTIONN) and The Reno Initiative for Shelter and Equality (RISE) call on our local leaders in Reno, Sparks, and Washoe County to dedicate land to the development of a SafeGround, where houseless residents within our community can live without fear of criminalization, harassment, or eviction and where they could benefit from the protection of our local law enforcement agencies and local services….

This would allow local non-profits and caseworkers easy access to people in need and would serve as a first step towards solving houselessness in Northern Nevada.
