Scrap the vagrancy act

Scrap the vagrancy act

I want them to consider talking about this situation to the government or to help homeless people by providing shelter and basic needs like water and food.

Why is this important?

They do not understand the root causes of homelessness, homeless people are often looked down upon as being "lazy" and "not looking for a job" but being homeless is what contributes to the unemployment rather than the other way round. To have a job, you need a bank account, to have a bank account you often need an address. This means that homeless people are stuck in a cycle of unemployment.
