Peaceful SafeGround Rally at Sacramento City Hall
10 AM on Thursday, September 10, 2009

Sacramento City Hall
915 I Street
Sacramento, 95814

Why Hasn't Sacramento Provided a Safe and Legal Place to Camp?

 The number of homeless people has risen by 14% in just two years. Shelters are turning away hundreds of men, woman and children every night for lack of space.  Why would we arrest people who have nowhere to go? Shouldn't the city spend its money on housing for people rather than on jails? Criminalizing homelessness is unjust and solves nothing.

 Please support the more than 1,200 homeless people who will sleep outside in Sacramento tonight and every night.

 Come to the SafeGround Rally this Thursday at 10 AM at City Hall.

 Ask our Mayor, City Council and City Manager to act immediately to:

 1. Declare a moratorium on enforcement of the anti-camping ordinance. It is unjust to cite and arrest people who have nowhere else to go..

 2. Provide SafeGround, a legal campground for homeless people who have signed a pledge of no drugs, no alcohol, no violence.
