“We will not obey unjust laws or submit to unjust practices.” MLK Jr.
Up and down the west coast, communities are gathering together to participate in Homeless Bill of Rights Days of Action. On January 17th, 18th, and 19th, in cities from LA to Seattle, from Sacramento to San Jose, people are taking action to demand that “The Homeless Bill of Rights” be put into law. Some of the things this will do is ensure: the right to move freely, rest, sleep, and pray and be protected in public spaces without discrimination and the right to 24-hour access to “hygiene facilities.”
What: DAY OF ACTION for a California Homeless Bill of Rights
Where: Carson Park- H and Buhne, Eureka
When: Saturday, Jan 18th 2:00pm – 5:00pm
