STOP THE SLEEPING BAN - Please join the Freedom Sleepers at the 97th Sleep-out at City Hall. We are calling for a change in Santa Cruz City Ordinance 6.36.010 Sleeping Ban. It is time to let people get a good nights sleep. It is illegal to sleep in a vehicle or outside in Santa Cruz from 11 PM to 8:30 AM. The police and rangers often wake people up several times a night ticketing and at times arresting people. This is a violation of their human rights.

Food Not Bombs and India Joze provide free food for everyone.

The response of City Manager Martin Bernal to the Survival Sleepers and the May 9th Protest has been to decree a complete ban on any First Amendment activity at City Hall from 6 PM to 7 AM and anti-homeless "regulations" banning folks from sitting down or lying or placing their possessions on the walkways at any time day or night. This without any Public Hearing, Notice, or Debate.
