On Monday, August 28, 2023, the Coalition for Justice and Human Rights (CJHR) initiated legal action against the City of Edmonton in response to the harm arising from the ongoing eviction and displacement of individuals residing in encampments.
Despite being aware of the inadequate number of safe and accessible shelter spaces available to a rapidly increasing unhoused population, the City of Edmonton continues to displace and destroy encampments with nowhere for people to go. These actions have resulted in vulnerable people repeatedly being placed in dangerous situations without the most basic of personal belongings or survival necessities, violating the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and undermining their fundamental human rights.
We need your help to protect the rights of unhoused Edmontonians.
Please donate what you can to CJHR’s legal fund. Any amount you can share will help stop the City of Edmonton from continuing to harm and displace the most vulnerable of our neighbours. A specific fund has been set up through CanadaHelps with charitable tax receipts available.
