Demand Denver gathered today, December 20, at the State Capitol to demand that Denver City Council repeal the urban camping ban. The rally was organized after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal in a case from Idaho that would have made camping in public spaces illegal. The decision allowed a lower court's decision to stand, making urban camping bans unlawful. The City of Denver says it will continue to enforce the camping ban here.
