10:00pm - set up camp and sleep
7:30am - breakfast

REASONS FOR THE SLEEP-OUT

Authorities continue to harass and cite members of the Santa Cruz unhoused community with citations.

This is happening even though there is no emergency walk-in shelter for the city's 1500-2000 homeless; waiting lists are full and generally seem to require a "path to housing", social worker, and/or disability check.

GUIDELINES AND GRUB

There will also be a set of proposed guidelines issued at the 6 PM General Assembly Tuesday, suggesting a "quiet for sleepers" and clean-up policy.
