ACLU Fights Anchorage

The ACLU is continuing to push the city of Anchorage, Alaska, to extend the window of time homeless campers have to vacate illegal encampments. After a local law made it illegal for the homeless to camp outdoors in the city, and gave violators 12 hours to vacate after being notified, the ACLU filed suit in court. The ACLU is insisting on a 10-day window to vacate encampments, and said it will not drop the lawsuit after the city proposed a 7-day compromise.
