Homeless Persons Memorial Day

Please join us, on the shortest day/longest night of the year, to remember and honor people who have died while homeless in Humboldt County. 
 

2pm- 10pm: Gazebo (2nd and F), Old Town, Eureka, CA 95501 
4pm: Under the clock, Garberville, CA 95542
 

We will gather from 2pm to 10pm with food, music, candles, and opportunity to share your thoughts and memories about the friends and neighbors we have lost. There will also be naloxone training and education. This will all be happening at the Gazebo (2nd and F) in Old Town Eureka on Thursday, December 21st – Winter Solstice and Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day.

In Southern Humboldt, you’re invited to gather “under the clock” in Garberville at 4pm, and there will be a candle light vigil in honor of those who have died while homeless, with no where to go.

FOOD AND DONATIONS FOR EUREKA GATHERING [certainly Garberville folks would like donations, too!]:

We are accepting donations of food and warm clothing to ensure our community members can make it through the night.

Please bring warm, clean donations of survival gear to the event: backpacks, sweaters, sleeping bags/blankets, hats, socks, belts, shoes, etc.

If you can, bring some vegetarian/vegan food (so everyone can enjoy). Regarding food, message or call Sarah Torres and let her know when you can bring your dish/food item. 707.267.4757.

Please show your support if you’re housed. Spread the word.

This year there has been a lot of violence against homeless people and unnecessary deaths of people without shelter. We honor those who have died by defending the dignity and safety of people living without shelter. And working so that no one is left out in a wet, cold. and dangerous situation.

Hope to see you Dec 21st. It is important that we come together and stay connected.

This year’s Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day is organized by people from Affordable Homeless Housing Alternatives (AHHA), Humboldt Area Center for Harm Reduction (HACHR), folks from Peoples’ Action for Rights and Community (PARC), and other caring people in the community.

CATCHING UP FOR LAST MONTH’S RENT, MOVING FORWARD

Hey folks. Just a short message to humbly ask for some money.  Peoples’ Action for Rights and Community, now open each and every day (almost) for 8 1/2 years, borrowed $200 for June 2016 rent. We need to pay it back. And we’re coming on July, too. Bills, rent, toilet paper, you know.

If you’re new to PARC, please read some of our previous, more detailed “panhandling” posts/emails. Please help and pass this on to more people who might be able to support a fully grassroots, volunteer and donation-based resource and organizing center.

We appreciate you.  Simply, we are in solidarity with all oppressed peoples’ and want our work to help create a healthier, more caring world.
