Occupy CEHKC, a coalition of homeless advocacy organizations that includes Nickelsville, needs your help to send this message. Show your support by:
  • Joining our Sleep Out in a city park (TBA) the evening of Tuesday, July 22nd. Dinner and activities will be provided and security shifts are assigned throughout the evening.
  • Marching to the CEHKC Governing Board Meeting the next morning (Wednesday, July 23rd) to voice your support for homeless encampments in King County.
More information will be posted to the Nickelsville Facebook page or the Occupy CEHKC in the next week.

Friends:

Ever wonder what homeless people would do to end homelessness?  You'd think they'd have some good ideas, don't you?

Since the Governing Board of the Committee to End Homelessness in King County chose to cancel THEIR quarterly Governing Board Meeting, you'll have a chance to find out!

Occupy CEHKC found out about the cancellation with less than a weeks notice.  We were shocked, and then realized just because others could take a vacation this summer, we couldn't.  That's because homelessness is a matter of life and death for us every night.  Many of us know at least one or two of the 25 King County Homeless People who have already died outside or by violence this year.

Please see our attached flier.

Another significant invitation has been issued by the Homeless Remembrance Project.  They are holding a Sunset Ceremony at the Tree of Life in Steinbrueck Park.  The Second Attachment contains their invitation, and then the Litany to be read tonight. 

We hope to see you at one or more - the Rally at 5:30 tonight, the Sunset Ceremony at the Tree of life, or the March to our own Governing Board Meeting tomorrow morning.  It starts at 7:00 AM at Steinbrueck Park.  The Governing Board Meeting will be at 8:35 AM at the YWCA Opportunity Place.

Hope to see you there!

PS:  Lots of Nickelodeon's want to attend tomorrow's meeting, but need a ride there at 6:00 AM tomorrow.  If you can offer a ride, call our staff person at (206) 450-9136 or scott@nickelsville.org.
