Sacramento, Calif. – Candidate for Sacramento City Council District 1 Alyssa Lozano issued the following statement in response to recent actions by the City to address homelessness:

“The actions taken by the City to ban encampments in public spaces, including parkways and sidewalks, is only one component of addressing our homelessness crisis. While I wholly understand the impact this crisis has had on local businesses, I sympathize with the fact that getting back on your feet without the proper support can be challenging. On the City Council, I will fight for more resources for those struggling with mental health and substance abuse. This is an issue that has touched my family personally. We should continue to lead with compassion, but we must be mindful of the programs that are working and those that have failed.”
