Human Rights Day - The homeless and their allies will gather at Fresno City Hall. They will call on the city to provide basic public services for the homeless - drinking water, portable toilets, and trash bins. They will demand these services for as long as we wait for city officials to fulfill their promise to end homelessness (as stated in the Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness). There will be a rally at 6 p.m. The larger the rally the more pressure their will be on City Hall to change their policy and begin to treat the homeless with dignity and respect.

Some homeless people and their supporters plan to spend the night on the City Hall lawn and you are welcome to join them. If possible, bring a sleeping bag, or blanket to donate to the less fortunate. The group will also be collecting canned food, and hygiene supplies for the Homeless.

There will be a press conference on Friday, December 10 at 10 a.m. which you are also invited to attend.

For more information, and details please contact Al Williams, at (559) 647-7165, or e-mail, alphonsowill62 [at] yahoo.com .
