MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Madison police issued tickets to nine people and arrested seven as they protested to raise awareness of the problem of homelessness.
The rally started in front of the City-County Building, moving inside after about an hour.
The police intervened when the people refused to leave. About 70 people were in the crowd hearing organizers of the rally talk about the lack of shelter options in Madison.
Day warming centers are scheduled to close March 31st and that will leave some homeless people without a place to stay.
City officials have been accused of failing to do enough to address Madison’s homeless issue.
