HUFF [Homeless United for Friendship & Freedom] is tabling to raise public awareness about and action around...
+++ The upcoming attack on vendors and other non-commercial folks on the street by the City Council with its new "Vanish the Vendors" ordinance. The law reportedly returns to City Council on May 10th. See http://scsire.cityofsantacruz.com/sirepub/mtgviewer.aspx?meetid=712&doctype=AGENDA [item #22]. My summary is at https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2016/04/11/18785162.php .
+++ Support for and solidarity with artists on Pacific Avenue, notably two arrested on Saturday April 16 for "displaying artwork outside the blue dotted area'. See “Pacific Avenue Santa Cruz: The Joff Jones and Alex Skelton Report on Freedom in the USA” at http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2016/04/25/18785582.php .
+++ Join the HUFF campaign to open the City Hall bathrooms 24-hours a day, reopen the closed Soquel Ave. garage bathroom, and bring Santa Cruz into the 21st Century on elementary health and sanitation matters.
+++ Support the HUFF campaign to replace "forbidden zones" blue "performance pens", and "move along" laws with the successful Voluntary Street Performers Guidelines--which worked well from 1980 to 2002, until torpedoed by a merchant-hamstrung City Council.
