NOMAD ALLIANCE INVITES LEGISLATORS TO NOMAD BLUE BUS 2.0 OPEN “HOUSE,” MEET AND GREET, APPETIZERS AND HOT CHOC THANK YOU


SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, JANUARY — The Nomad Alliance invites Utah State legislators, community members, media to an open “house” and reveal of the Nomad Blue Bus 2.0, today, Wednesday, January 28th, from 2-5pm in the Bus Parking east of the Utah State Capitol. 


Please come and enjoy appetizers and hot chocolate, coffee and tea in the first mobile warming shelter and mobile wifi cafe, newly renovated, set to shelter those sans home 24/7 for the remainder of winter and provide warming/cooling and digital inclusion all year long. 


Please come and chat with our nomads about their lived experience and solutions to the homeless epidemic and celebrate a legislative session of milestone achievements to support those on the streets, while also knowing we all have work to do, and there is no better time to plant the seeds for a new beginning than the end of a job well done.


We hope the legislators present are open to asking the right questions from those with lived experience present on the bus, who will also be managing and taking care of the bus throughout the rest of winter. 


The Nomad Alliance would also like to brainstorm solutions to three problems and find legislative sponsors and law-based solutions:


  • Bathroom Epidemic - lack of adequate toilet facilities accessible to the unsheltered, ecoli outbreak in the Jordan River, taxpayers footing medical costs alleviated by adequate hydration and relieving facilities, public health issues with fecal matter and urine downtown with no other alternatives, criminal penalties and life with sex offender status just from performing a basic need

  • Deeply Affordable Housing - discussing the loosening of zoning laws to allow trailers, micro-homes and business/church lot parking as a deeply affordable housing option, removing or lightening the legislative shackles to unilateral city action on rent control and rent caps

  • Discrimination Against the Unhoused and a Homeless Bill of Rights or Housing as a Protected Class
