Housing and Homelessness Conference and Solidarity Campout being planned

HOMELESS ACTION! MEETING
Homeless Action! Meeting
Monday, Dec 28, 9:30 - 11 am
First United Methodist Church
1551 Montgomery, Santa Rosa


DAY-LONG CONFERENCE
Yesterday the Winter Action Committee met and agreed to
plan a day-long Conference and Solidarity Camp Out in
Santa Rosa during the 2nd or 3rd week of January.  The
Winter Action Committee is motivated by the pain and outrage
we feel as our sisters and brothers face the wet and cold
of another winter outside.

The conference will cover both the housing crisis and homeless
issues.  Please come to the Homeless Action! meeting next
Monday (see above) to plan something that can make a difference.


THE GREAT BURRITO GIVEAWAY
Yesterday, Francisco "Paco" Cano coordinated the cooking
of 120 burritos at what he says is the best Mexican restaurant in
Santa Rosa, Los Arcos, 1971 Marlow Rd.  A bunch of us
picked them up in 5 cars and offered them to homeless people.

Here's what happened for my car: Enrique, Aceilla and I had
ten burritos.  We took a long, rainy, beautiful walk along the
Joe Rodota Trail at Stony Point and found one guy.  Then
we went to a underpass at 9th street (7 people) and an
underpass off South A.  We could have handed out 6-7 more in
that area.  People were happy to get them.

"it's warm," said one woman in surprise as she stood in the
rain with her cigarette.
