The Homeless and The Law

In the eyes of the law, all Americans are equal.  In theory this is true.  Access to the law for homeless Americans is, however, not as egalitarian.  

The Homeless Law Blog is a project of Linda Tashbrook, a lawyer and librarian.  It  is a "research guide for homeless people trying to learn about their legal rights and liabilities."  Ms Tashbrook addresses questions that range from keeping pets to bathing in public facilities, from employment to privacy.
