Testing the Waters for Another Koffee Klatch

by Robert Norse (rnorse3 [at] hotmail.com)
With the increased sweeps against those outside in Santa Cruz, HUFF (Homeless United for Friendship & Freedom) is checking out unhoused and sympathizer support for a regular daytime presence at City Council offices to lobby the Council for some fundamental policy changes.The regular gathering would include coffee and munchables as we seek to speak to the unspeakable.

On Tuesday, April 5, HUFF tabled at the Food-Not-Bombs meal downtown to sample opinion for the latest proposed protest lobbying effort to educate and press City Council to end the ongoing homeless sweeps.

The three flyers describe the reasons for the Koffee Klatch and some of the background which has prompted it.

Results of the poll will be released in the near future.


An earlier Koffee Klatch raised the issue of the Sleeping Ban back in 2000.
