Document sweeps of the unhoused - form linked here

From the Sacramento Homeless Union: We created this form to have a centralized place for people to report witnessing or experiencing a sweep. This form will aid in legal documentation, data collection, as well as organizing and activism. Please share with folks on the ground in Sacramento and or on social media.
