The homeless advocate’s been meeting and feeding area homeless for the past few months. With a loaded backpack, Keegan Keppner strolled through the streets of downtown.
He’s simulating what it might be like to be homeless and living on the streets of Eugene. He will spend the night somewhere in Eugene on Friday night.
Keppner recently met with congressman Peter DeFazio. Now he’s calling out the Eugene City Council.
He wants councilors to spend the night outside, challenging them to stay on the streets for 24 to 48 hours.
“Before you make up your mind about the homeless,” said Keegan. “Go live with them. See how it feels.”
He planned to sleep at a site that had no camping signs posted. If police came by, he says would just move to a different location.
