Eureka City Council – Homeless Crackdown 2015

This is taken from an email message we received from 
Affordable Homeless Housing Alternatives [AHHA]

The Eureka City Council takes up a response to the Grand Jury on homelessness, and is proposing to further criminalize homelessness and sleep, evicting residents without a safe, legal place to move.  This is taking place in Eureka as the Dept. of Justice is ruling that one cannot criminalize sleep. 

Speaking up  with homeless neighbors to the City Council and BOS is AHHA’s job now. Being ‘friends’ is good – better to advocate what we know from our experience.  Now we must speak clearly that the Eureka City proposal of evictions and barring people without houses from public and private land is likely a violation of civil and human rights.  All Hands on Deck!  Especially Eureka residents.

This is AHHA’s work! Advocate for a Declaration of a Shelter Crisis, since there is No Housing or land to sleep on.  AHHA will circulate a petition for declaring a Shelter Crisis before the Eureka City Council Meeting, and ask you all to get signatures from your neighborhood, friends and family.
If you cannot be there:  call or email your city council member (emails below).
