Rally and Community Listening Session Friday July 24th

Operation Welcome Home:
Homeless Fighting For the Homeless

Invites you to a Rally and Community Listening Session On Friday July 24th.

We demand that the city address the root causes of homelessness rather than using displacement and criminalization to deal with homelessness. In response to their plan to spend $1 million on renovating Peace Park into an amphitheater and visitor’s center with a police office, we will be asking for those funds to be matched or re-directed into resources and programs that prioritize and meet the needs of homeless and low-income people in Madison.

Where: Beginning at Peace Park marching to the Capitol steps (off of State St.)

When: Friday July 24th
11:45 Peace Park
12:00 Capitol Steps
(followed by a BBQ and celebration at peace park from 2-4.)
