The camp at Westport & Southwest Trafficway is getting bigger and more organized.
The warming project is an effort from the Midwest Homeless Collective - They're aligned with several local protest groups like Stand UP KC and KC Tenants but they're even more broke.

However, given the "current political climate" we might see other strategies enacted to cope with the demands of politically savvy street level activists.
