California is home to more than half of all unhoused people, many in unsafe conditions without access to basic necessities including food, shelter, and health care. Black Californians are disproportionately represented in the unhoused population, as are American Indian or Alaska Native and Pacific Islander Californians.
PILP protects and advances the civil rights of unhoused people across the state; fights the criminalization of homelessness; and works to ensure equitable access to benefits and services that are designed to help unhoused people get and keep stable housing.
