Homeless Protesters Speak at City Hall Wednesday Morn

come act in solidarity with us, show your support and demand affordable and safe housing at the city counsel meeting tomorrow. it will be at city hall, wednesday morning at 9am. invite your neighbors, co-workers, and friends and demand justice!
we also need more housed people to come out and sleep on the sidewalks around city hall. until we have more housed folks out here showing that they are on our side and that this is in fact a WHOLE community issue, we will likely and unfortunately not be taken as seriously. pull out your sleeping bag, ground pad, tarp and sign, and set up shop with us. there's lot of friends down here who are willing to help you navigate your protest while sleeping on the street. see you there!
