Picture the Homeless to put Mayor Bloomberg on trial

Got an email today from Picture the Homeless, a New York organization by and for homeless people. They've been extremely frustrated with Mayor Bloomberg's tactics in implementing his Five Year Plan to End Homelessness.

Four years of the mayor's five year plan have passed. The chart above is from the city's own records: black being the projected figures and red the actual figures.

Picture the Homeless believes Mayor Bloomberg has not been accountable to the homeless community; therefore, they plan to put him on trial before a jury of his homeless peers. The trial will be held Tuesday, June 24, at St. Bartholomew's Church, Park Avenue at 51st St., in the Chapel from 1 to 3:30.

At 3:30, a march to deliver the sentence will begin.

If you're in or near New York, go and support Picture the Homeless.

Hi Michaelann! Thanks so much for your post on this. Sorry you won't be able to join us for the trial, but trust us - we'll be shooting lots of video (which will go up on YouTube), and publishing the trial transcript ASAP.

Keep in touch!
