    "Poor People's March For Human Rights"

    Marching for safe shelter, health care, healthy food, and Dignity FOR ALL. Please join us.

    We're a group of very concerned, active, and local residents who have united to address consistently ignored issues of poverty, of certain chronic suffering, and oppression of homeless people- which requires greater focus by everyone. Each day harassed, and with another pending nightfall... the necessity to rest, to sleep... and with no sanctuary.


    International Treaties, the U.S. Constitution and courts at every level in this country have established the obvious- that sleep is a human necessity. Also, they have established that depriving someone of sleep is 'cruelty'. However, local police, judges, and the public continue to treat homeless people who must live and sleep in public as if they are committing crimes. In the rare instance that a homeless person has legal support to challenge local courts,the "criminal charges" of sleeping, dismissed.


    The public's belief that homeless people are living outside of the law hardens personal prejudice and adds more conflict to a people already facing painful and critical situations. Homelessness growing, no relief in sight, all of us facing deeper economic woes, lost jobs, state budget cuts and all.


    The illegality of local police and government practices against homeless people is never mentioned in the media nor talked about by officials. It is imperative that all of us who know the truth, share this with others.... toward the communities awareness that can help stop these practices of harassment, threatening arrest, physical abuse, destroying and/or confiscating peoples' personal property. Such practices cause great stress and injury and allow prejudice to grow. Criminalizing of homeless people must cease.


    We have plans to create a well organized and well maintained camp, a human rights sanctuary... with and for homeless people- a prototype for other sanctuaries that may follow. This will take skills and effort from people from all walks of life. We are also being advised by competent legal support. Communities in other cities are busy following this same course.


    Please tell your congregations about the March on September 12th and let them know that we are open to and encouraged by more folks who would like to share ideas or get involved in any way.

    Join us and call for sharing your ideas...
