"NO FOOLING DAY" National Day of Action Against Criminalization of Homelessness

Next Sunday, April 1, 2012, Street Roots, Right 2 Survive and Sisters of the Road invite you to join us in a national day of action to stand up against the ongoing criminalization of people experiencing homelessness and poverty! "No Fooling Day" will also serve as the Western Regional Advocacy Project (WRAP's) launch date for a national campaign to protect the basic civil and human rights of people without housing and to ultimately stop the inhumane and wasteful process of criminalization. Over fourteen cities will have simultaneous actions to bring people together to say we must change how we treat those in our communities who have nowhere to go.

WE WON'T GET FOOLED AGAIN! Fighting for our Right to Exist! This is also the day that the fines being leveraged against Right 2 Dream Too double. Stand with the Dreamers at Fourth and Burnside who are working to keep people safe and dry!

2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. -- Leafletting the Public (Gather at S.W. Sixth and Morrison) 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. -- Rally in Pioneer Courthouse Square

Sponsored by Street Roots, Right 2 Survive and Sisters of the Road
