VIDEO – Serving Unhoused Sacramentans Citation Defense
Guy Danilowitz (he, him, his) Assistant Public Defender, has been an attorney since 2009. He has experience in civil and criminal law in state and federal court. He is currently employed by the Sacramento Public Defender’s Office where his main duties are defending felony trials. As a volunteer with the National Lawyers Guild he also coordinates, trains, and responds to requests for Legal Observers and conducts Know Your Rights trainings.
The MCLE will provide an overview of the criminalization of homelessness in California and in Sacramento and then discuss efforts to stop that costly and ineffective practice, including: the citationdefense clinic that the National Lawyers Guild has started in Sacramento; similar projects in other parts of the state; and ongoing civil litigation in Sacramento and elsewhere in the state.
