ACLU Forum on Houselessness with Mike Rhodes, author of Dispatches from the War Zone.
"Dispatches from the War Zone" author Mike Rhodes will be speaking about his book and what can be done to defend homeless peoples' human and civil rights.
Rhodes was a key organizer in a 2006 class action lawsuit by the homeless against the City of Fresno.
The $2.3 million dollar settlement forced the city to stop bulldozing homeless encampments and compensated the homeless for their losses.
Following the presentation there will be a Q&A and panel discussion on the Santa Cruz Sleeping ban and other issues affecting our homeless community.
C0-sponsored by Santa Cruz Food Not Bombs and Veterans for Peace, Corrie-Mizo Chapter and the Santa Cruz chapter of the ACLU.
