Many Maine towns and cities are turning to policies that ignore the root causes of unsheltered homelessness and threaten unhoused residents' rights. We're seeking more information to learn about policies and enforcement practices in Lewiston and Auburn.

As cities like Portland forcibly displace unhoused residents, we're seeking information to learn about the policies and enforcement practices happening throughout the state, including in Lewiston and Auburn. Policies like camping bans harm unhoused residents, are a waste of resources that ignore the root causes of homelessness, and threaten unhoused people's constitutional rights.

See our requests in the PDFs at the bottom of this page or here and here.

This request is in progress and the page will be updated after we have received and analyzed all relevant documents. Last updated: June 3, 2024.
