The State of Rhode Island is paving the way and standing up for the rights of homeless individuals by passing the first Homeless Bill of Rights in the United States. The Bill, would ensure  a “person the right to use public sidewalks, parks and transportation as well as public buildings ‘without discrimination on the basis of his or her housing status.’ It also guarantees a ‘reasonable expectation of privacy’ with respect to personal belongings.” (NY Times)

What do you think about this new Homeless Bill of Rights? Should the rest of the nation follow in Rhode Island’s footsteps?
