Friday, September 29, 9 PM – Saturday, September 30, 11 AM, Fresno City Hall

Action to oppose City of Fresno No Camping ordinance targeting homeless people. www.facebook.com/events/1709887029053801 The ordinance starts on Sept. 29. At that time Fresno Police officers will be authorized to arrest homeless people who sleep on public or private property, effectively criminalizing homelessness. After arrest, homeless people will face a $1,000 fine and 6 months in jail. If you want to stop the City of Fresno from implementing this ordinance, help us get 1,000 people to attend this event. We need people who are willing to bring their tent and/or sleeping bag to City Hall on Friday, September 29 starting at 9 p.m. If you can’t spend the whole night, come for as long as you can.

It’s resumed- The Congressman Nunes Weekly Protest Every  Tuesday from  11:45 am – 12:45 pm

This  is a noon-time peace, prayer and solidarity vigil in front of Congressman Devin Nunes Office in Clovis. If you attend, please respect the purpose of peaceful prayer, reflection and civil dis-obedience. Corner of 3rd St and Clovis Ave in downtown Clovis.

“Bev and I want to thank you for attending the Tuesday Vigil in the past and encourage you to join us again for the Fall Season of peaceful protest outside of Devin Nunes office in Clovis.  We know this is going to be a “long haul” all the way to November 2018 and we want to keep the momentum we created during the last six months.  I am guessing over 2-3 hundred cars pass by our intersection within the hour that we are there.  You can just imagine, over the next 14 months, how many people we can reach.  We also are noticing many, many more motorists honking their horns.  We are making a difference!”– Dave
