Join us at noon on Pacific to TAKE BACK THE PUBLIC SPACE ! We’ll share coffee, brownies, strong opinions, and heart space with all comers.

HUFF [Homeless United for Friendship & Freedom] is tabling to raise public awareness about and action around…

+++ The upcoming attack on vendors and other non-commercial folks on the street by the City Council with its new “Vanish the Vendors” ordinance. The law reportedly returns to City Council on May 10th. See [item #22]. My summary is at .

+++ Support for and solidarity with artists on Pacific Avenue, notably two arrested on Saturday April 16 for “displaying artwork outside the blue dotted area’. See “Pacific Avenue Santa Cruz: The Joff Jones and Alex Skelton Report on Freedom in the USA” at .

+++ Join the HUFF campaign to open the City Hall bathrooms 24-hours a day, reopen the closed Soquel Ave. garage bathroom, and bring Santa Cruz into the 21st Century on elementary health and sanitation matters.

+++ Support the HUFF campaign to replace “forbidden zones” blue “performance pens”, and “move along” laws with the successful Voluntary Street Performers Guidelines–which worked well from 1980 to 2002, until torpedoed by a merchant-hamstrung City Council. See .
