DULUTH, MN -

Mary and Baby Jesus visited Duluth City Hall on Thursday to endorse the homeless bill of rights.

Loaves and Fishes Community put on the event, announcing their endorsement of the bill. 

The draft of the bill has 11 protections, including the right of protection from discrimination in housing and employment, as well as the right to 24-hour access to basic hygiene facilities. 

"Until everyone has a bed and a roof above their heads, we need to ensure that people without housing are free from discrimination and maintain the dignity they deserve," said Loaves and Fishes Community member Joel Kilgour.

As of now, there are more than 50 area organizations and businesses endorsing the Homeless Bill of Rights.
