Location Details:
On or near the steps of the main Santa Cruz Post Office where Front St. meets Pacific Ave.

Cafe HUFF and Jumbogumbo Joe Schultz will be serving coffee and perhaps some edibles.

We'll be making colorful placards to raise awareness about the anti-homeless Sleeping Ban that along with the "closed areas" laws results in hundreds of infraction tickets and stay-away orders each month.

EARLIER PROTEST
This event is a follow-up, report-back-from, and discussion of next steps around last Saturday night's Sleep Out at City Hall.

There 7 of us were cited by 22 police officers in the wee hours of Sunday morning and threatened with arrest if we didn't move.

We stayed for several hours then reassembled later that morning for breakfast on the steps of the Post Office. The housed organizers acknowledged their original intentions to continue the Sleepout for the next few nights was not something they had the energy or stamina to do.

Instead they set a date for a second SleepOut two weeks away, and a protest march on July 11th. Because of insufficient publicity and other difficulties, the group recommends focusing on next Sunday July 19th as a 2nd SleepOut night.

We will see how people feel and take further input at the Brunch during the later Food Not Bombs 4-6 meal on 7-11 and 7-12.

There will also be a 6:30 pm Sleepingspot Search meeting Sunday night to firm up SleepOut plans.
