|Title:||As Eugene OR restores Right to Sleep at Night, Freedom Sleepers Plan for 21st Night Out|
|START DATE:||Tuesday December 01|
|TIME:||6:30 PM – 6:30 PM|
|At Ye Olde City Hall 809 Center St. in the public commons area until it becomes privatized at 10 PM, and then onto the sidewalks!
The actual event time extends through the night and begins in the afternoon when unhoused folks are gathering (often to be harassed by police and security guards). The time can extend into late Wednesday morning when the harassment has often renewed. City authorities have banned the public from using the grassy areas to rest on during the day, and the entire courtyard area at night.

SANTA CRUZ HOMELESS SHIVER ON IN 21ST PROTEST
ASSEMBLY OF THOSE OUTSIDE AT RED CHURCH
Though open two nights via private charity efforts, Warming Centers have received zero support this winter from the Santa Cruz City Council–which postponed until January any further discussion of the issue.
Freedom Sleepers will be discussing what protests or other measures need to be taken to provide some survival street heat. The main purpose is to support the rights of unsheltered people in public spaces, build a coalition, and educate the community. Additionally some want to gauge how much support there is for continued Freedom Sleep-Out’s and consider other alternatives.
The hour long meeting will be followed by vigiling, picketing, singing, socializing, & surviving another Tuesday Freedom Sleep-Out night.
