Please share this announcement with sympathizers of First They Came for the Homeless

The proposal of First They Came for the Homeless to create an intentional community of people without housing options was rejected by Berkeley's City Council last night (Nov. 1).

This means we remain subject to police raids and evictions, which makes it more difficult for us to provided a place for Berkeley's homeless where they can safely sleep and get food and assistance for their critical needs.

Our response to the City of Berkeley's rejection of our proposal for a drug and alcohol-free tent village is to organize the tremendous support and encouragement we've received from Berkeley's housed community to actively demonstrate the benefits of our model to the satisfaction of City officials harboring doubts.

Please come to the General Assembly to contribute to our plan for next steps and find out how you can help.
