The Colorado Right to Rest Fest rocked!! We stood up and spoke up strong together!

Posted on January 27, 2018 by Jonathan

At least 200 people came out to stand up for the Right to Rest at the Fest on Monday!!! People came from cities across the state including Fort Collins, Boulder, and many nearby suburbs where homeless folks in Denver have been swept. Over 30 people spoke calling for the Right to Rest. At least 16 of these people came from the streets with lived experience of homelessness and the inescapable need for this bill. We had tons of delicious food provided by FNB, Sexy Pizza, and Blue Point Bakery. Bike’s were fixed. Cloths was gather. Everyone (should have) gotten a R2R t-shit. And good times were had by all!!!
