Public Protest planned for Tuesday May 29th at 5pm regarding the City of Ashland's proposed Exclusion Zone targeted at the homeless. The city is also proposing changes to its Camping Ban which would make it easier for the police to give citations.
The Ashland City council is planning to take action on the downtown exclusion zone at their upcoming meeting. This scheme would tighten the noose on homeless individuals while continuing, to provide no alternative for safe campsites or shelter for those in need. The city is also considering toughening the language of the camping ban to make it easier for the police to give citations. Please join us for this empowering event on the Plaza, even if you don't plan to spend the night. Bring cameras, signs, used clothing to share, and your voice to speak out for a compassionate city government.
