Linda Tashbook, Foreign, International and Comparative Law Librarian at Pitt Law, was quoted in a Pew report about the enactment of bills of rights for the homeless.  The report was published by Stateline, a online publication of the Pew Center on the States. Ms. Tashbook said that without a bill of rights, and in a non-receptive government environment, homeless advocates have to pursue big expensive lawsuits trying to show that existing versions of legislation and regulations exclude homeless people and that homeless people should not be excluded.  “With a Homeless Bill of Rights, the claim can be clear and simple,” Ms. Tashbook said. “There is no need to wait for a new incident of victimization.”
