DEATH OBITUARY : Michael Stoops, former Portland homeless activist, dies

PORTLAND, Ore. (PORTLAND TRIBUNE) — A charismatic Portland homeless leader who left town in disgrace but gained a reputation for effectively working on the national level has died.
Michael Stoops passed away early Monday morning, after a long period of poor health. Stoops suffered a stroke in June 2015 while working for the National Coalition for the Homeless, which he helped found.
We are saddened to say that Michael Stoops of the National Coalition passed away today. He was a longtime friend and a mentor. He will be sorely missed. There was no one else as dedicated as him. He was popular for his research on hate crimes toward the homeless and every year would produce a "Meanest Cities Report" to point out cities for their ridiculous and hateful laws towards the poor.
Michael Stoops was a large reason the Homeless Voice was able to help so many people. When we would struggle, we would call him for advice.
Here is a short article if you did not know him.
